Sudanese government officials detained and internet access cut in apparent coup

France24 says Military forces detained at least five senior Sudanese government figures on Monday, officials said, as the country’s main pro-democracy group called on people to take to the streets to counter an apparent military coup.  

The Sudanese Professionals’ Association, a group leading demands for a transition to democracy, also said there were internet and phone signal outages across the country. 

A possible takeover by the military would be a major setback for Sudan, which has grappled with a transition to democracy since long-time autocrat Omar al-Bashir was toppled by mass protests.
