The US Embassy in Khartoum calls on its citizens to avoid areas of protests

The US Embassy in Khartoum on Friday called on its citizens to avoid travel and to refrain from being in the areas of protests that are expected to be organized tomorrow, Saturday, in the Sudanese capital and other cities.

The embassy said through its account on (Facebook) that "demonstrations are expected to take place on December 25 in the capital and other states."
"Everyone should avoid non-essential travel and be in crowds and demonstrations," she added.

The Sudanese "Professionals Association" (which leads the movement in the street) called on citizens to participate in the protests scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, under the slogan "Millionaires demand the establishment of a full civil authority."

The Khartoum State Security Committee announced the closure of the bridges linking the three cities of the capital (Omdurman, Khartoum North and Khartoum) as of today, except for the Soba and Halfaya bridges.

In a press circular, the committee warned that departing from peace, approaching and violating the sovereign and strategic sites in central Khartoum is against the laws, and said that "chaos and abuses will be dealt with."

Sudan has witnessed a stormy political crisis and has been suffering from political tension since the commander of the Sudanese army, Lieutenant-General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, announced measures on October 25 that included declaring a state of emergency and dissolving the Sovereignty and Ministers Councils.

The political agreement signed on November 21 between Al-Burhan and Prime Minister Abdullah Hamdok failed to calm the street.
A transitional authority was formed in Sudan, consisting of military and civilians, after the overthrow of Omar al-Bashir's government on April 11, 2019.
