A Sudanese policeman was killed in a shootout with gangsters in the North Darfur capital El Fasher on Tuesday, the governor said, in the latest sign of growing lawlessness in his state.
"A police patrol following a suspect in the town's east end came under fire from criminals. An exchange of fire ensued," Governor Osman Kbir told Sudanese television.
One lawman was killed along with a suspect, Kbir said, adding several other suspects were wounded and one arrested.
"Things in the town have returned to normal," he said.
