Lubna Ahmed Hussein Barred From Leaving Sudan

Lubna Hussein has been barred from leaving Sudan. Lubna was notified of the ban as she was at the airport to on Monday night board a Lebanon-bound plane in response to an invitation by Middle East Broadcasting Channel (MBC).

Husayn (Hussein) said that the airport security officers took her passport and pulled her aside informing her that she is on a list of individuals not allowed to leave the country.

Note that we have five or more variations of Lubna’s name in cyberspace, presumably each influenced by the local customs and culture of the news organization or writer. In this article, Lubna is reported as “Lubna Ahmad Husayn.”
