Local residents said the Sudanese police raided on Sunday an apartment inhabited by foreigners in the neighborhood of Arkaweet, east of Sudan's capital Khartoum.

The police arrested foreigners with a mass of weapons and explosives and is still surrounding the area, the sources said.

"This morning we heard a powerful explosion in a nearby apartment, and then the police forces arrived at the area," a resident told Xinhua near the site of the raid.

"We saw the police taking a number of foreigners who were residing in the place, and I think Syrians, Somalis and other Arab nationals were among them," he said.

The Sudanese police has not yet released any official statement on the incident.
