abu klea - Name of some wells in the Sudan, on the route from Korti to Metemmeh, where the British repulsed the dervishes in 1885. The expedition led by Lord Wolseley was proceeding along the Nile to the relief of Gordon. To save time by avoiding the loop made by the Nile above Dongola, a camel corps under Sir Herbert Stewart was sent across the desert. On Jan. 17 this was attacked at Abu Klea, and on the 19th at Abu Kru, where Stewart was mortally wounded. The little force reached the Nile near Khartum, but was too late to save Gordon.
