IS-linked militants and a soldier killed in Sudan raid

Four suspected Islamic State-linked militants and one Sudanese soldier were killed during clashes in the capital, Khartoum, on Monday, state news agency Suna reports.

“The terrorist group fired heavy shots at our forces from a variety of weapons, including… machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and grenades,” it said.

Reuters news agency quotes state TV and witnesses as saying the clashes happened in southern Khartoum, days after a raid on what officials said was an Islamic State-linked cell in the same area.

It said Lt-Gen Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan, head of Sudan’s ruling council, visited the site of the clashes.
