Sudanese authorities will restore internet services gradually, state media said Thursday, after more than three weeks of a rigorous blockage since last month’s military coup.
“Internet services are gradually returning through all telecommunication companies,” the official news agency SUNA quoted officials as saying.
The internet has been largely blocked in Sudan since October 25, the day of the coup.
Earlier on Thursday, a Sudanese court has ordered the detention of the heads of the three telecommunications companies in the country until internet services are restored, the lawyer who raised the case against them told Reuters.
