More than 200 people, including women and children, are stranded on Jebel Haraz north of Shangil Tobaya. A witness on the mountain told Radio Dabanga on Friday that the people were stranded there for two days. He said that they had fled on foot to the mountain from villages neighboring Shangil Tobaya.They were fleeing from aerial bombardments and violent house-to-house searches by government forces, he said. Witnesses described the searches as humiliating and accompanied by looting and confiscation of property. The witnesses said they had contacted yesterday the UN – African Union Mission in Darfur by phone, but the peacekeepers replied that they were unable to come to their assistance.
