Sudan’s ousted Prime Minister, Abdalla Hamdok, has been reinstated following last month’s coup when he was put under house arrest. He has appeared on TV to sign a new power-sharing agreement with coup leader, Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, amid continuing mass protests.
The civilian coalition that nominated Mr Hamdok as PM two years ago has refused to acknowledge any new deal. The pact had been struck with a gun to his head, reports say. Since 25 October, when the military declared a state of emergency and dissolved the civilian leadership, at least 40 people have died in mass protests against the coup.
