Sudan’s ruling transitional military council said Thursday it foiled a coup attempt days after reaching a governing agreement with the civilian-led opposition. Lt. Gen. Jamal Omar, a member of the council, said in a statement that authorities detained at least 16 active and retired officials from the army and the National Intelligence and Security Service. “This is an attempt to block the agreement … that aims to open the road for Sudanese people to achieve their demands,” Omar said.
