Sudan strengthens its security at the Ethiopian border

Security forces in Sudan said they have strengthened security along border with Ethiopia, announcing that they have full control of the region amid tensions with Addis Ababa.

Sudan announced on December 1 that its troops had dismantled and taken control of an Ethiopian colony after reports that 21 Sudanese soldiers were killed and 30 others wounded in clashes with Ethiopian forces at Birkat Nourain in al-Fashaga area, four days earlier.
