The Sudanese security and defense committee, part of the Transitional Military Council, reported on Thursday, July 11, that a coup d'état attempt had been foiled. Further details were not immediately released.

A heightened security presence is to be expected in Khartoum and other Sudanese cities over the coming hours and days.


Following months of protests, President Omar al-Bashir was removed from office on April 11 in a military coup. The military dissolved the government and formed the Transitional Military Council (TMC) and announced it would rule until presidential elections could be held in two years. A sit-in demonstration was held until June 3 to demand increased civilian participation in negotiations. Protests have slowly resumed since then. On July 3, opposition Alliance for Freedom and Change leaders agreed to participate in direct negotiations with the Transitional Military Council (TMC); talks were previously suspended in May due to a dispute over whether a civilian or military official should rule the transition body.


Individuals in Sudan, particularly those in Khartoum and other urban areas, are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate a heightened security presence, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments, refrain from nonessential movement, and avoid all protests due to the risk of violence.
