On 12 November 2021, the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum issued a Demonstration Alert, which reads in part as follows: “Sporadic and decentralized protests were reported in and around Khartoum the night of November 11 following the announcement of the appointment of a Sovereign Council. Large protests are planned for November 13. While organizers continue to encourage non-violent civil disobedience, there have been violent confrontations in the past. Embassy personnel have been instructed to shelter in place. American citizens are also advised to shelter in place to the extent possible.”
