KHARTOUM - At least one person was killed on Wednesday when protesters in Sudan's Darfur region burned government buildings and threw rocks at security forces after the removal of the state governor.

Sudanese security forces fired bullets into the air and used tear gas and batons to disperse the demonstrators who have been protesting for two days in Nyala, the largest city in the war-torn region, two witnesses said.

"The situation is chaos," one witness in Nyala who asked not to be named said by telephone, describing tires burning on the street, smashed car windows and the sound of gunshots.

One man died from gunshot wounds and at least 28 people -- including 18 police -- were wounded in the fighting, police said in a statement.
