Sudanese Man Kills Himself, Two Police In Grenade Blast
A Sudanese man threatening to blow himself up unless police allowed him to see his detained relatives died when the grenade he was carrying exploded as police tried to disarm him, a Sudanese paper reported on Monday.
Two police officers also died and five others were injured in the blast, including the commander of the police post in western Sudan.
The man went to a police station in the Western Darfur state near the border with Chad on Sunday, asking to see several relatives detained there, the privately owned al-Sahafa newspaper quoted a police statement as saying, cited by Reuters.
Police told him he had to complete police procedures before he could visit them. They were trying to disarm him when the grenade exploded.
The paper said the man had returned from government military operations elsewhere in the country and had been wounded in the fighting. It did not say why his relatives were detained. (Albawaba.com)
