The UN Security Council called Thursday on Sudan’s new military rulers to restore the civilian-led government that they toppled this week.

The council passed unanimously a statement that expressed “serious concern” about the coup Monday in the poverty-stricken African nation which has experienced only rare democratic interludes since independence in 1956.
