French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday condemned the coup attempt in Sudan and called for the immediate release of the Sudanese prime minister and civilian members of the government.

Soldiers arrested most members of the Sudanese government on Monday and a military officer dissolved the transitional government, while opponents of the takeover took to the streets where gunshots and injuries were reported.

Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok was arrested and transferred to an unknown location after refusing to issue a statement in support of the coup, the information ministry, still apparently under the control of Hamdok supporters, said.

Sudan's Ministry of Information said military forces arrested civilian members of the Sovereign Council and members of the government.
