Just hours after the information ministry said most of the civilians in the two bodies had been detained, including the prime minister, Burhan reiterated his commitment to “the transition towards a civilian state”.

He said he would form a “competent” government, pledged to create numerous state institutions like the supreme court, and said Sudan remained committed to international agreements it had signed.
