Sudan Army says it will make important 'announcement'
The Sudanese Army has deployed troops around the defence ministry, on key roads and bridges in the capital Khartoum.

There are reports the head of the ruling party and the former vice president have been detained.

Thousands have flocked to the streets of the capital - and joined a sit-in outside the military headquarters. 

That protest has been taking place since Saturday.

Earlier, state television said the armed forces would make an important announcement, amid speculation a coup attempt could be under way against President Omar al-Bashir. It follows months of protests against his 30-year rule.
