State television says prime minister is safe after blast in the capital, Khartoum.
Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has survived an assassination attempt Monday after a blast went off near his convoy in the capital, Khartoum.
Hamdok wrote on Twitter he was “safe and in good shape” following Monday’s explosion.
“What happened will not stop the path of change, it will be nothing but an additional push in the strong waves of the revolution,” added the veteran economist, who became prime minister in August, months after a pro-democracy movement forced the army to remove long-time President Bashar al-Bashir.
Al Jazeera’s Hiba Morgan reports from Khartoum.
