Sudan: Protests Continue in Sudan
As of 1 July, protests are ongoing in Sudan, with hundreds set to gather in Omdurman today to demand a transition to civilian rule and denounce the killing of at least seven protesters during nationwide protests on 30 June. Protesters are said to have erected barricades around the White Nile bridge.
Those who wish to travel in Sudan are advised to be aware that security forces are unable to guarantee the safety of travellers across much of the country. Heightened security measures and associated transportation disruptions are to be expected nationwide, notably in the capital Khartoum and its twin city Omdurman. Violent clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out. Internet service and telecommunication disruptions are ongoing and likely to continue in the near term. Avoid all large gathering and observe local curfews. For essential travel, travel in convoy and with an embassy approved security escort. Proceed with extreme caution. Further protests are likely in the coming days and weeks.
