Coup in Sudan
Last Monday, the top generals of Sudan seized power from the government in a coup. The prime minister and other civilian leaders, which had previously shared power with the military under a tense agreement, were arrested. The military proceeded to impose a state of emergency, opening fire on protestors. President Biden condemned the coup and offered economic assistance worth $700 million in the hopes of aiding the protests for democracy.
