Sudan President Dismisses Powerful Spy Chief

Via Yahoo! News (AP) -

Sudan's official news agency says the president has dismissed the country's powerful head of national security and intelligence.

Thursday's SUNA report says Salah Ghosh has been appointed an adviser to President Omar al-Bashir, a less prominent position.

It was not immediately clear why the intelligence chief was dismissed.

Ghosh assumed his post in the mid-1990s and has cooperated closely with the U.S. in the fight against terror.

Ghosh was replaced by his deputy.
