KHARTOUM, Sudan — The government of Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok calls for his immediate release, after the country’s army chief said the civilian leader was staying with him after a coup.

The call for Hamdok’s release comes in a statement from the information ministry which appeals for “liberation of everyone” arrested yesterday with Hamdok. This includes his wife, several of his ministers, and civilian members of the council that was in charge of the country’s transition to full civilian rule.
