A huge explosion near El Malha, North Darfur, in the early hours of Tuesday morning created terror and panic among the town’s residents.
A listener told Radio Dabanga that at 1am an ammunition store of the paramilitary Central Reserve Police, south of El Malha, exploded. “At least three bombs fell into the town. One detonated and killed a number of camels, while the other two did not explode.”
He added that the blast destroyed the ammunition store entirely, and created panic among the people who thought that the town was under attack.
The commissioner of El Malha, Mubarak Abdallah Fadul, confirmed the explosion, and said that it did not cause losses, except for a number of livestock. He stressed that the authorities would investigate the incident.
