Sudan protests Egyptian serial about terrorists


 Sudan has summoned Egypt’s ambassador to complain about a TV series that portrays Egyptian terrorists as they are living in Sudan.

The Sudanese Foreign Ministry said late Saturday that the Ramadan serial, titled “Abu Omar al-Masry,” is “insulting to Egyptians living in Sudan.” It urged Egypt to “stop attempts at disturbing the interests of the two countries.”

Khartoum is angered by the idea that Egyptian militants would find refuge in Sudan, especially that Khartoum is considered one of the safest cities in the world which has not witnessed any terrorism attacks.

Relations have been strained over the past year by Cairo’s repeated provocations at all levels, especially with regard to Halayib territory.
