Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Protest at Egyptian Embassy

November 18, 2015

The U.S. Embassy in Khartoum informs U.S. citizens that Sudanese social media sites are calling on people to gather tomorrow, November 19 at 10:00 a.m. outside the Egyptian Embassy in Khartoum to protest the treatment of Sudanese citizens in Egypt and demand the immediate withdrawal of the Sudanese Ambassador in Cairo.

Some social media sites have called on people to use violence to achieve their demands.

All U.S. citizens are strongly cautioned to avoid the area around the Egyptian Embassy, located in the northwestern area of Khartoum City in the vicinity of Friendship Hall and the Corinthia Hotel, from 9:00 a.m. Thursday, November 19 until the demonstration has ended.  Embassy employees have been advised to avoid known Egyptian businesses and restaurants for the duration of the day, as the protest may spill towards those locations.

Remain vigilant and maintain your situational awareness for any signs of suspicious activities.  Monitor reliable local news sources for updates.
