The ongoing closure of the highway connecting Sudan to Egypt by the Sudanese resistance committees of the north has entered its ninth day.

The ongoing closure of the highway connecting Sudan to Egypt by the Sudanese resistance committees of the north has entered its ninth day.

Sudanese protesters in the northern state have erected several barricades along the road connecting the two countries and have disrupted the movement of Egyptian-owned vehicles returning to Egypt with Sudanese livestock or goods.

Protesters, who are mostly farmers, closed the road initially because the government raised the cost of electricity and forced the government to make a U-turn.

Many of the pro-democracy activists in the state are opposed to the exportation of live cattle and other Sudanese agricultural goods, which they claim benefits the military and its companies.
