A member of the Sudanese National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) has been killed in a clash with troops in the eastern part of the country, reports Agenzia Nova (Italy).

Fighting erupted between the two groups on Wednesday night in Port Sudan on the Red Sea, said a local police official.

Several personnel from both sides were injured in the battle, the official said.

The incident was the first between security and military forces since anti-government protests began last month, noted Reuters.

The NISS has been cracking down on the demonstrations.
