Or it can be considered to be the 3rd largest city in Egypt. Omdurman could work for "O" as it can be considered to be the most populous city in Sudan. We don't know if this quiz is about city propers, metro areas or urban areas.

Can't find any source that puts the population of Sousse over 1,000,000.

On the other hand, the metro population of Sfax is (just) over 1,000,000, and it's not included.
