It and Baraka in the Muglad district are on the trade road between Nahud and Shakka in Darfur.
A few miles below the confluence the Baraka leaves Italian territory.
Apart from the Nile system, fully described elsewhere, the Sudan has two other rivers, the Gash and the Baraka.
The Khor Baraka lies east of the Gash.
The rest is carried off, almost due north by the Khor Baraka, which occasionally reaches the Red Sea south of Suakin; by the Hawash, which runs out in the saline lacustrine district near the head of Tajura Bay; by the Webi Shebeli (WabiShebeyli) and Juba, which flow S.E.
