Indian ‘king’ in Africa’s ‘no man’s land’

No man can own a territory but adventurer Suyash Dixit from central India’s Indore city trudged hundreds of miles to the ‘no man’s land’ of Bir Tawil in North Africa to stake claim to it, Daily Telegraph reports. The 2,060 sq km land along the border between Egypt and Sudan does not belong to any state or tribe and Dixit has invited applications from people for citizenship. In 2014, Jeremiah Heaton, a farmer from Virginia, made a similar journey travelling 6,000 miles to claim Bir Tawil and make his daughter its princess.  He planted a flag there on her seventh birthday.
