"Intruders in Suna" (砂への侵入者たち, Suna e no Shinnyūsha-Tachi, Viz: Intruders in the Sand) is chapter 247 of the original Naruto manga.


Sakura takes Naruto for a tour of Konoha to reacquaint him with the village. They run into Shikamaru escorting Temari from the village, the two working together in anticipation of the next Chūnin Exams. They inform Naruto that he is the only member of their group to still be a genin, everyone else now either a chūnin or, in some cases, a jōnin, and Gaara has become the Fifth Kazekage. In Sunagakure, Gaara has a meeting with the village's council as they discuss rumours of an impeding Akatsuki attack. Yūra begins acting peculiar following the meeting just as cloaked individuals approach the village. He eliminates Sunagakure's border guards to grant the Sasori and Deidara passage. Sasori is glad to see Yūra has remained a loyal sleeper agent, and Deidara prepares to capture Gaara for the tailed beast sealed within him.
