Sudan reopens airport after mutiny within security forces


Sudan says it has reopened Khartoum international airport following the closure of its airspace during clashes on Tuesday between the army and a security force loyal to the former leader Omar al Bashir.

The head of Sudan’s sovereign council Lt Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan said two soldiers had been killed in the struggle to bring the revolt to an end.

The general said he would never allow a coup to succeed and that the army was in full control.

The government has described Tuesday’s unrest led by former members of the National Intelligence Service as a mutiny over severance pay.

It has accused a former intelligence chief, Salah Gosh, of being responsible.
