Earlier Lt Gen Auf announced that Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir would be arrested and taken to a safe place.

But we don’t know where he is at the moment.

The last time the state media reported on him, while attending state functions in the country, was on Monday, says BBC Monitoring’s Moses Rono.

His current whereabouts are the subject of speculation.

CNN said several hours ago that sources told them he was under house arrest, something we have not been able to confirm:

On Monday Sudan’s News Agency Suna reported that he was in his office.

Some guess that he may have already fled to Saudi Arabia, while others suggest he may have a secret palace in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum.
