KHARTOUM, Sudan - Sudan’s new military rulers say two brothers of ousted President Omar al-Bashir have also been arrested, over corruption.

The official news agency SUNA is quoting the spokesman of the military council, Gen. Shams Eddin Kabashi, as saying on Thursday that Abdullah and Abbas al-Bashir were arrested as part of the sweep against officials from the former government.

The Sudanese military ousted Omar al-Bashir last week, after four months of street protests against his 30-year rule marred by conflict, civil war and corruption. Al-Bashir is also wanted for genocide and crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court for atrocities committee in the western region of Darfur.

The military council, which took over after al-Bashir’s ouster, said the former president was transferred on Tuesday to a prison in the capital, Khartoum.
