KHARTOUM - Around 13 Sudanese policemen were killed and 33 injured in clashes in the troubled region of Darfur, officials said on Friday.

"13 policemen were killed and 33 injured in Jebel Marra in South Darfur on Thursday night," said a police spokesman. "I don't have anymore more details now."

The governor of South Darfur, Abdel Hamid Kasha, told Reuters police had been trying to free three soldiers taken hostage by unknown armed groups when clashes erupted, adding that details were unclear.

Darfur is the scene of an insurgency against the government in Khartoum.
