welcome back after the break you're watching in the snooze and I'm physical bringing you our main stories in detail we start from Afghanistan where a series of explosions has killed 24 people in the capital Kabul and nongak our province 27 others have been wounded in the blasts officials said the attacks began with the bombing of a bus carrying civil servants in Kabul interior ministry spokesman nazareth Rahimi said the second explosion occurred near the site of the bus attack the third blast hit eastern part of the capital Taliban spokesman Sabula Mujahid claimed responsibility for one of the Kabul attacks saying they killed nine foreign soldiers the attacks came during a visit to Afghanistan by US Joint Chiefs of Staff head General Joseph Stanford in another bomb attack nine people including six women and four children were killed in the eastern province of Nanga her Sudan's military council has arrested the army chief Hashim Abdul Mutallab for involvement in a failed coup earlier this month the ruling council said at least 16 active and retired military officers have been detained for investigation and trial in a press conference Council Chairman Mohammad Othman said officers from the Intelligence and Security Services have also been arrested he said plotters of the failed July the 11th coup attempt sought to scuttle a political settlement leading to civilian rule the constitutional power sharing deal signed recently by the military and civilian opposition is yet to be announced for more on this we have with us our correspondent mr. Patrick oh it thank you for your time mr. Patrick Oh yet so firstly the failed coup attempt shows that the military is divided over the power sharing agreement canvassed a rest of the military chief trigger a backlash from within the Armed Forces people are very happy now that this Agreement being worked on and of course the follow former al Bashir people hoping for a new government so ever is is termed as being you know a sympathizer of the former President Omar al-bashir or someone who wanted to overthrow the government or to be looked at as an as a radical person definitely the public are going to you know be against that person so it is possible that some individuals or some personalities in the in the military are using the coup issues to silence some of their opponents this is also possible that the people of Sudan are a little bit confused and worried now what is happening time and again to plot people arrested and there's also no proper information coming out like okay if there was a coup plot if these people were arrested what next what has happened they've been taken to a military court-martial or what exactly is happening before the public is kept kind of unaware what happens after all these and mr. Oh at the agreed upon constitutional power sharing deal is still yet to be announced what is holding this declaration of the agreement signed by the military and the civilian opposition now it is very difficult to tell exactly where the disagreement is but we understand that there are issues concerning for example accountability for the atrocities that were committed the civilians that were killed when actually they were still protesting that they wanted military military to hand over power to the civilians and we understand that the military do not want this issue to be brought up again the same let bygone be bygone let that he should not be investigated for example and those who maybe would be helped to put they are saying that happened during the revolution and that it should be led as it is it is something very very difficult even if it is put in the constitutional declaration that investigation would began and those found that people would be held accountable it is something that may end using a piece of paper right and emits all of this there are reports of the opposition drafting a new agreement of their own once again if there is any truth in those reports does this mean that they are planning to back out of the deal brokered by the African Union this is a nature of negotiations you know people always change their minds especially when you you don't sign something immediately when an agreement has been reached that's why it's important to initial whatever document contains something that we have agreed on so that people don't change their mind because they go and consult their constituencies they go on consul members of international community who may have their own interests scheme in your case there is no proper system the more there is no a clear future then you are bound to have this kind of you hear of military coup of chaos once in a while here and there and you know the business people the people who are there who don't even care about who is in government but they want to see that children go to school they want to see hospitals functioning they will be the very people would be suffering so for the mediators for the African Union introduced before for the Cuba leading this mediation they have to stand firm so that when is any agreement read those what the portal should be no to stick to your email then the whole process will speed up and these will eventually come to you to the right thank you for your time mr.
