Excerpt from Wikipedia

Opened in 2007, the El Mek Nimr Bridge links the downtown area of Khartoum, Sudan with the adjacent city of Khartoum North across the Blue Nile river. It is named after a famous leader of the Jaaliyeen tribe in Northern Sudan, who infamously burned the son of Muhammad Ali Pasha, Ismail, and his cortege when they invaded Sudan from Egypt in 1822.
