And it quoted an informed security source, who was not named, that the security services managed to arrest him in the city of Port Sudan, noting that “he holds a passport in the name of Mahmoud, and he is nicknamed Abu Muhammad, and he is of Egyptian nationality.

She added, quoting the same source, that “all the suspects were arrested, except for a Sudanese element, who is still being pursued by the authorities.”
