Several ministers of Sudan’s interim government have been detained by the military, and PM Abdalla Hamdok is under house arrest, reports claim. This comes amid rallies by pro-military protesters and supporters of civilian rule.

With tensions between supporters of the military and interim government flaring up in the last several days, Al-Hadath TV reported that four ministers of the interim government and one high-ranking civilian official were arrested early on Monday. The prime minister himself has reportedly been placed under house arrest.

Reuters reported, citing “family sources,” that the military also arrested Hamdok’s adviser during a home raid.

There have also been reports of wide-ranging internet and telephone services outages in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum.

The Sudanese Professionals Association, the group which spearheaded the protests for civilian rule last year, urged supporters to take to the streets to show “fierce resistance” to what they described as a “brutal military coup.”

“We appeal to the masses to go out to the streets and occupy them, to block all roads with barricades, to go on a general strike, not to cooperate with the putschists, and confront them with civil disobedience,” the group said in a statement on Facebook.
