The Sudanese military has dissolved civilian rule and declared state of emergency in the country.
The military also arrested political leaders in the country.
This is coming at the heels of the intense protests that hit the Sudan Capital, Khartoum.
Thousands of civilians joined the protests amid reports of gunfire.
The overthrow of the former president, Omar Al-Bashir two years ago and the formation of a transitional rule has led to a divide between the military and civilian rulers in the country.
Gen Abdel Fattah Burhan, who headed a joint council with civilian leaders, blamed political infighting.
