April 25, 2006 (KHARTOUM) — Two persons were slightly injured on Tuesday in an explosion of an explosive device at the building of Al-Baraka Bank in Omdurman, the state-run SUNA said.

In a press conference Tuesday, the Police explained that a person has thrown a hand grenade at the building, a matter that led to the injury of two customers of the bank.

It explained that the police are currently investigating the incident to know who committed it and his motives, pointing that there is a suspect so far.

Director General of the Police Forces Gen. Mahjoub Hassan Saa’d said that the Police Head-Quarters has worked out a comprehensive programme for collection of arms along with strict regulations for possession and use of arms.

He affirmed the importance of increasing the presence of the policemen in the streets to discover and prevent crime.

He stressed the importance of the provision of security in the national capital, saying security in the national capital constitutes the greatest concern.

In the meantime, commenting on the recent incidents at Amri area in the Northern State, Gen. Saa’d said that the measures taken by the police are legal, affirming that an investigation committee has been formed to know the circumstances of the incidents that led to death of four persons.

He went on saying the police were not hasty, whereas there could have been a disaster had the police not intervened. The police had no choice, but to intervene to keep the security.
