The United Nations Secretary-General urged Sudan's generals on October 31 to reverse their takeover of the country, a day after tens of thousands of people took to the streets in the largest pro-democracy protest since last week's coup.

Antonio Guterres said the generals should take heed of Saturday's protests. Time to go back to the legitimate constitutional arrangements, he said in a tweet.

He was referring to a power-sharing deal that established joint military-civilian rule following the ouster of longtime autocrat Omar al-Bashir and his Islamist government in April 2019.
