Sudan: Pro Al Qaeda graffiti appear overnight around the country

But there's no al Qaeda there. Nope. No siree.

The walls in the Sudanese capital as well as another major city have been smothered with Graffiti supporting the Al-Qaeda terrorist Islamic militant group, multiple sources told Sudan Tribune.

Residents of Khartoum and Omdurman woke up to paintings showing Islamic symbols such as the crescent with the words “Al-Qaeda Organization in Sudan” on them.

The pro-government Al-Rayaam said that the drawings appeared in Al-Thawra, Al-Harah Al-Sadisah and Ali Abd Al-Latif Street close to the US embassy.

But Sudanese security officials talking to Al-Rayaam downplayed the importance of these drawings saying it is the “work of children”.

How about this, this and this? Is this the work of children as well?

And what about these remarks from President Bashir at a rally where a "small group carried a banner urging al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden to attack Denmark" and the president vowed:

"We tell you that no Dane will foul the land of Sudan again."
