KHARTOUM - Sudanese security services have suspended the independent al-Tayar newspaper, an editor said on Wednesday, two days after agents confiscated an entire edition in a crackdown against the media.

Sudan's constitution guarantees press freedom but journalists have complained of increasing pressure from government, particularly since the politically sensitive secession of South Sudan in July.

Tayar's Deputy Editor Abdulbaqi al-Thafir told Reuters the head of the security services had telephoned in the afternoon to inform the newspaper it would be closed.

"We haven't seen it in writing yet," he said.
