Quoting Sudanese Information Minister Ahmed Bilal Osman, sources, who requested anonymity, told Xinhua that the minister said al-Bashir has left the country.
Some South African media also reported that the Sudanese president has left the country, without giving specific news sources.
But there were also reports that al-Bashir was seen at the AU Summit after he was reported to have left South Africa.
The Sudanese government said al-Bashir would only leave South Africa only after the AU Summit ends on Monday.
The conflicting reports confused the media about Al-Bashir’s whereabouts. Enditem
