Sudanese authorities blocked bridges across the capital city of Khartoum and declared an official holiday ahead of expected protests.

In an official statement, the Khartoum State Security Coordination Committee said on Wednesday that all bridges over the Nile would be closed except for the Soba and Halfaya bridges.

The security committee also called on citizens to change their course of movements across the capital accordingly.

The Sudanese Council of Ministers also announced an official holiday across the country.

The announcement came after the Sudanese Professionals Association called for protests to overthrow what they described as the "coup council and hand over power to a full civilian government."

Since 25th of last October, Sudan has been witnessing protests calling for civilian rule and rejecting exceptional measures taken by the army chief, Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan.
