KHARTOUM, Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- Sudanese security authorities on Thursday arrested former chief of National Intelligence and Security Service, Salah Abdallah Gosh, and some other officers of the security organ and army, in the wake of a foiled military coup attempt.

"Military and civilians who were behind the aborted attempt were arrested," a security source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

"Other suspects are being dealt with and expected to be arrested soon," added the source, hinting that Hassan Al-Turabi, secretary general of the opposition Popular Congress Party (PCP), is suspected of being the mastermind of the attempt.

"The Sudanese security and intelligence organs early Thursday aborted a conspiracy targeting the country's security," the Sudanese Media Center said, adding that "this conspiracy is led by officials in the opposition parties."

It further said that the security organ has been following up the sabotage plot, adding that the concerned authorities have embarked on security procedures and investigations.
