Sudan’s airspace and airport has been closed, after Sudan military ousted President Omar al-Bashir.
Omar al-Bashir was in power for more than 30 years and public protests backed by military removed him from power.
The minister announced the closure of airspace, airports and other points of entry to Sudan.
The airspace would be closed for at least 24 hours, while land crossing would remain shut until further notice.
Bashir, a former paratrooper who seized power in a bloodless coup in 1989. Since then he managed his way through many internal crisis and withstood attempts by the West to weaken him.
Sudan has suffered prolonged periods of isolation since 1993, when the United States added Bashir’s government to its list of terrorism sponsors for harbouring militants.
Washington followed up with sanctions four years later.
