KHARTOUM, Sudan —

A Sudanese official says police have killed two Islamic militants and arrested about 20 in a raid on a militant training camp in the country's south.

The governor of Sinnar state along the border with Ethiopia said Monday that four policemen were wounded in the attack, which occurred on Friday.

Governor Ahmed Abbas was quoted by the al-Shurouq independent TV channel as saying the militant group was behind an October attack on guards at the Dindir National Park - the largest wildlife park in Sudan.

The park is a known hideout for outlaws as it's hard to access during the June-October rainy season.

Abbas says those arrested are university students. Their leader, a university teacher, also was arrested. He says they are being investigated and will be brought to trial.
