Kahndaq is a country. Its capital is Shiruta. It borders Egypt.[1]


In an unknown year, the Kahndaq dynasty diamond was recovered.

Kahndaq was liberated by A.R.G.U.S. and a multitude of soldiers in 2012. This led to a large amount of sectarian violence.[2]

A nerve gas was manufactured in Kahndaq, then shipped to the United States (Earth One) for Gholem Qadir.[3]

An extremist sect named Onslaught kidnapped a class of girls and killed their teacher.[4] They also went on to execute a number of men with bags on their heads in the capital, Shiruta.[5] Sometime later, the Suicide Squad came in to eliminate members of Onslaught. They took a member of the sect to interrogate.[6] They found Khem-Adam and various soldiers in the Amon-Shu Caves in the Ahk-Ton Desert, where a fight ensued. During the fight, Bronze Tiger was killed, the kidnapped girls were saved and Khem-Adam was taken by The Canary and Nyssa al Ghul.[7]
