Reports came this morning that the convoy of the Sudan prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok, was attacked by an explosion a few meters away from his office in the capital, Khartoum.
Although he survived the apparent assassination attempt, Hamdok has been transported to a safer place and his family has confirmed his safety.
Sudanese state TV stated that Hamdok was headed for His office when the explosion took place. The attack was identified as the vulnerability of Sudan’s transition to civilian rule.
However, no one has come forward to lay claim on the attack, and the device used in the attack hasn’t been identified.
Other vehicles which were also parked on the street got damaged by the explosion and their windows were broken. Several people were seen later on on the site of the attack; “With our blood and soul, we redeem you, Hamdok” they chanted.
