A district court has ordered the restoration of the internet in the crisis-ridden Sudan.
Khartoum – The internet was shut down shortly after a military coup on October 25th. According to the order from Monday, a connection to the Internet was still not possible at noon of the day, according to a dpa reporter on site.
The new military ruler General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan dissolved the government after the coup and declared a state of emergency. The deposed civilian prime minister Abdalla Hamdok has been under house arrest since then. In the past few weeks there have been repeated protests by thousands of Sudanese who are calling for more democracy and a civilian government in the country on the Horn of Africa with 44 million inhabitants. The international community is also demanding the release of political prisoners and the restoration of constitutional order. (dpa)
