Sudan’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour and his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shukry will meet in Khartoum in the first half of April in an attempt to contain a muffled crisis between the two countries. Indeed, Tensions between Khartoum and Cairo have escalated following the former’s decision to restrict imports of Egyptian farming products which was reciprocated by Cairo’s decision to raise residency fees for Sudanese living in Egypt. But both countries have expressed their wishes to strengthen their cooperation and overpass this misunderstanding.
A Sudanese man died on Sunday after suffering serious head injuries from an attack last Monday. Police arrested a 16-year-old suspect shortly after the attack and extended his remand on Sunday until Tuesday. The victim, Babiker Abdo Adam Ali, 38, was found badly beaten with a sharp object in Petah Tikva on November 14. The circumstances and motivations of the murder are still murky; police are searching for additional suspects in the vicious attack and have declined to provide any details on a possible motivation.
