Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the head of Sudan’s sovereign council, said on Wednesday that the country’s airpsace was open, and that all intelligence buildings were under the control of the army, following a revolt by former security agents linked to Sudan’s toppled ruler Omar al-Bashir.
The violence was the biggest confrontation so far between the old guard and supporters of the new administration, which helped topple al-Bashir in April after 30 years in power.
The security agents surrendered late on Tuesday after negotiations with their leaders.
In a televised speech, al-Burhan said he would never allow a coup to take place.
Al Jazeera’s Hiba Morgan, reporting from Khartoum, said: “After more than 15 hours of a standoff … the Sudanese armed forces said the situation has been resolved.
“It looks like the situation, for now, has been contained.”
