KHARTOUM - Dozens of journalists and Sudan's national press body protested against the dismissal of the editor of one of the country's biggest independent newspapers by the security service, staging a rare challenge to the dominant security apparatus.

On Thursday, Al-Nour Ahmed al-Nour, editor of al-Sahafa newspaper, said security agents came to his office to order him to leave his job after accusing him of insulting one of their colleagues.

Nour has stopped working since then, and the newspaper, one of Sudan's oldest, has removed his name from the masthead.
