Khartoum is the capital and largest city of Sudan (in North Africa). Khartoum was established 24 km North of the ancient city of Soba in 1821 by Ibrahim Pasha (the son of Egypt’s ruler Muhammad Ali Pasha). Khartoum originally served as outpost for the Egyptian Army, but the settlement grew quickly as a regional center of trade. It also became a focal point for the trading in slaves. Today more than 5 million people live in the Khartoum Metropolitan area. Khartoum is located at the confluence of the White Nile flowing North from Lake Victoria and the Blue Nile flowing West from Ethiopia. This photo of the Khartoum Skyline has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 7th of February 2012.
