‘I’m here baby, I’m here’: Husband reunited with pregnant wife in UK after fleeing Sudan

Nagi held Reem tightly in his arms for over 40 seconds.

The two were reunited in a hotel near Stansted Airport, after he fled violence in Sudan during one of the final evacuation flights from the country.

Nagi’s tears turned into chuckles as she cradled Reem’s belly and spoke to their unborn baby.

He said, “I’m right here, baby. I’m right here.”

Nagi and Reem have been married three years. They applied to the UK Government to move Nagi to Newcastle to live with Reem.

When the war began, his passport and identification documents were at the British Embassy in Sudan.

Sky News quoted Reem as saying, “I tried my best to do this but I don’t believe it will work.”

They’ve been refusing to accept people with biometric ID cards and work permits. “I thought they would never accept my husband.”

When I arrived at an airfield, they placed an X on the back of my hand. Nagi explained that the X on Nagi’s hand meant he couldn’t leave.

He told Sky News that the red stain on his hand was still there as he described how his country had descended into chaos.

He said that there is a shortage of food in the capital.

Also, there is no electricity and confusion about fighters wearing fake uniforms. Dead bodies are also lying on the streets.

He said that there were reports from witnesses of dogs ripping corpses whose numbers might not have been among the 500 people who had died.

He said: “I’d call it a ghost city.”

There are reports that fighters switch uniforms.

The worst part is that we don’t know where to run and who to run to.
