Al Arabiya TV and Al Hadath TV said on Tuesday that Sudanese authorities have allowed them to reopen their offices.

Sudan suspended their work on April 2 over what the Sudanese minister of information described as of “lack of commitment to the required professionalism and transparency and failure to renew [their] licenses.”
