African Union suspends Sudan over military coup

The African Union (AU) has announced on Wednesday that it has suspended Sudan from all its activities after the Sudanese military took over power unconstitutionally.

In a communique, the pan-African body said the suspension would be in place until “the effective restoration” of the transitional authority steering the country towards elections.

The suspension came as the World Bank also on Wednesday followed the United States in suspending aid to Sudan following the widely condemned military takeover.

Meanwhile, state oil company workers and doctors said they would join a growing campaign of civil disobedience called by a coalition of unions against the power grab.
