(Bloomberg) -- The Sudanese prime minister arrested Monday in the country’s military coup returned to his home, Al-Jazeera reported.

Abdalla Hamdok went back to his residence in the capital, Khartoum, the news channel said, citing security officials it didn’t identify. It didn’t specify the conditions of his release or if his movements would be restricted.

Hamdok’s detention and that of civilian members of his cabinet sparked global outcry and demands from the United Nations secretary-general for their release and the restoration of Sudan’s democratic transition. 

The top general who led the putsch, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, on Tuesday outlined plans for a new government and said that Hamdok was staying with him as a guest for his protection. Al-Burhan led the sovereign council, the highest decision-making body in Sudan’s transitional government in which an uneasy coalition of civilians and army figures shared power.
