Sudan’s military reinstates ousted civilian PM Hamdok

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.

But the civilian coalition that nominated Mr Hamdok as PM two years ago refused to acknowledge any new deal.

The pact had been struck with a gun to his head, a spokesperson told the BBC.

“The future of the country will be determined by the young people on the ground,” Siddiq Abu-Fawwaz, from the Forces for Freedom and Change (FFC) coalition, told BBC’s Newshour programme.
