Two Darfuris were killed and three others were abducted in the city of Wau, Western Bahr-Elgazal which is a state in South Sudan which is the new neighboring country of Sudan. A witness told radio Dabanga that an armed group raided two neighbouring houses occupied by Darfuris who worked in business. Two of them were killed, the remaining 3 were abducted and all their properties, money and belongings robbed. The witness also explained that a number of Darfuris in the city of Wau had been the subject of repeated night-robbery operations by armed gangs for more than a month, and that they had appealed to the security authorities of the Western Bahr-Elgazal state to provide them with necessary protection.
