Can anybody give a first-hand up-date on the situation in Khartoum, Sudan at the moment, please? We have airtickets to Khartoum in a couple of weeks for a five day stay and pyramid tour but the BBC is suggesting that the civil unrest is getting out of hand. We'd be grateful for any current first-hand information. Thanks.

I know internet access in Sudan has been restricted at the moment but maybe you can reach out to your tour and accommodation providers? They should have some on the ground information. Looking through some of the articles it does seem to be escalating. Usually when they start demanding the president to step down it means chances of a quick resolution are slim But still things in Africa have a habit of changing at the drop of a hat, so I'd keep my fingers crossed but my options flexible;).
