Event

Sudanese army soldiers seized control of an intelligence headquarters in northern Khartoum late (local time) on Tuesday, January 14. The military's seizure of the building reportedly comes after canned General Intelligence Service personnel reportedly fired their weapons from the building in protest of severance packages offered to them, with some contending the packages are of lower value than deserved.

Authorities announced on Tuesday that operations at Khartoum International Airport (KRT) would be suspended until Tuesday evening amid ongoing unrest in Khartoum. Flight disruptions, including delays and cancelations, are to be expected over the coming hours. A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions, such as road closures, are to be anticipated in Khartoum over the coming hours and days. Clashes between protesters and security forces are possible over the near term.  

Advice

Individuals in Khartoum are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid the area of the incident, anticipate a heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions near sites of unrest, including road closures, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.

Individuals traveling via KRT are advised to confirm flight reservations before departing for the airport and anticipate flight delays and cancelations.
