In a statement, the US State Department said, "Anthony Blinken welcomed the release of Abdallah Hamdok, and reiterated his call to the Sudanese military to release all civilian leaders in detention and ensure their safety."
Hamdok's office stated that he and his wife had been returned to their residence in Khartoum, adding that Hamdok was "under heavy guard".
Hamdok was returned to his residence hours after the Sudanese army chief, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, announced that Hamdok was with him at his home.
All incoming and outgoing flights from Khartoum Airport were suspended until October 30, 2021 due to the conditions the country is going through, according to Ibrahim Adlan, Director of Civil Aviation, while calls continue in Sudan for the continuation of civil protests against the military coup.
The UN Security Council also held an emergency closed session, after a request made by Ireland, the United Kingdom, Norway, Estonia, the United States and France.
