CAIRO (Reuters) - One member of Sudan's National Intelligence and Security Service was killed and several other people were wounded on Wednesday night in a clash between members of the service and army troops in Port Sudan, a security body said in a statement.

The incident in the Red Sea city was the first of its kind between security and military forces since a wave of anti-government protests that has rocked Sudan began on Dec. 19.

The statement came from Major-General Mohamed Moussa Omar, secretary of a committee that oversees security in Sudan's Red Sea province.
