Watch this huge wall of dust tower above Sudan’s Khartoum turning the sky blood red

Phenomenon known as a ‘haboob’ left buildings, cars and residents covered in thick blanket of sand.

The sky above the Sudanese capital of Khartoum turned blood red on Thursday (1 June) after a huge dust storm towered above and engulfed the city.

In what looked like a scene from an apocalyptic film, video footage shows a thick wall of dust approaching the city and quickly blanketing its buildings, cars and people.
