A military council has taken control of Sudan and arrested longtime President Omar al-Bashir, the country's military said Thursday. The move comes after opposition protesters recently gained new momentum in demanding al-Bashir leave office.
Sudan's defense minister, Awad Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Auf, said the "regime" had been removed and its head arrested, as he announced the coup in a televised statement.
The minister said a transitional military council will rule the country for two years.
Protesters have been calling for al-Bashir's ouster for months. Thousands swelled the capital Khartoum's streets as the military promised to make an important announcement earlier Thursday.

One group of Moham-madmen thugs being deposed by another group of Moham-madmen thugs. Yawn.
Meet the New Boss.
Same as the Old Boss.........................
Couldn’t happen to a nicer fellow. When will he be extradited to face charges for genocide of his nation’s Christians and pagans?
Sheesh- quickly reading the headline scared the crap outta me
Now that’s what I call “Term Limits”.
Was he killing the enemies of Islam too fast or too slow?
Too fast: Didn’t keep them around long enough to expropriate enough of their goods & labor?
Too slow: Well that speaks for itself!
I guess we will see which it is!
They need to know Jesus.
Thanks C19fan. This is going to get even uglier, and fast, IMHO.
Good riddance to that creep.
He harbored Osama bin Laden, and sponsored islamist militias to conduct widespread massacres and enslavement of Christians for years.
Obama’s islamist half brother Malik was on Bashir’s payroll.
Algeria’s long-time dictator resigned last week.
Sudan’s was overthrown this week.
A Field Marshall is now marching on the Capital in Libya to seize the Government.
Is there a program at work here?
While you’re having your revolution, there are a couple of Somalis in Washington you can take back.
It is interesting timing. The Libya thing has been festering since Hillary stuck her finger in the pie in 2011. Looks like it's going to be an interesting summer in that part of the world...again...
Field Marshall Khalifa Haftar, who led the effort fighting ISIS in Libya, and is now fighting to seize the Capital City and National Government - also holds US citizenship.
He has a long relationship with the CIA, and lived in Northern Virginia for many years.
I wonder how much support from globalist, statist, communist and/or muslem operatives within the US government he has received?
I read it right but my mind went to Venezuela.
Silence is consent and a JackBoot on your throat is a good way to keep you silent. Its good to see more getting more tired of the crap and doing something about it.

Creepy looking character!
Here's United States Response to 'Awad ibn Auf' being appointed as head of the council
Protesters ‘defy curfew’ after military ousts Bashir of Sudan...
Demonstrators say the military council is’ part of the same regime’....The fresh stand-off has raised ‘fears of a violent confrontation between protesters and the army.’....
“This is a continuation of ‘the same regime’,”.. said Sara Abdeljalil of the Sudanese Professionals Association(SPA).... “So what we need to do is to continue the fight and the peaceful resistance.”
Crowds on the streets of Khartoum waved flags and chanted “Fall, again!” - refashioning their previous anti-Bashir slogan of “Fall, that’s all!”
The SPA has previously said that...” any transitional administration must not include anyone from the “tyrannical regime”.
