African Union suspends Sudan’s membership over coup


The African Union (AU) has suspended Sudan days after the country’s military sacked its transitional government and took power.

The suspension was announced today by the political affairs, peace and security department of the African Union Commission.

Military forces, led by Abdel Fattah al-Burhan(pictured), had on Monday arrested some members of Sudan’s transitional government and other civilian leaders.

The transitional government, made up of both civilian and military representatives, was supposed to oversee a return to full civilian rule.

The AU said the suspension will be in place until the transitional government is restored.

It also called for the release of all the civilian leaders being detained by the military.
