Airport Closed

Yesterday as I went to the airport to see off the two other South Africans, who are going to Khartoum for two days, we were met by a closed airport at El Fashier. In the photo you can make out the airport checkpoint bottom right and the men on the vehicle are SLA rebels. The reason why the airport was closed? Because Minni Minawwi, the leader of the largest SLA faction was going to land here. The plane took off without our guys, but they got a flight later in the day. Posted by Picasa
