Sudanese authorities (Sudan) have contained a failed coup attempt and the situation has been brought under control, a member of the country’s ruling council told Reuters on Tuesday.

Interrogation of suspects involved in the attempted Sudan coup on Monday was due to begin and the military would issue a statement shortly, spokesman Mohamed Suleiman said.

A government source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the coup attempt had involved an effort to take control of state radio in Omdurman, across the river Nile from the capital, Khartoum.
