A man was killed and another was wounded in an armed robbery in Abu Jubeiha in South Kordofan.

An eyewitness from Abu Jubeiha told Radio Dabanga that two gunmen on a motorcycle intercepted the victims near Hillet Sembo, south of the town, on Thursday.

“The two sides exchanged fire, which led to the death of one person, and the injury of one of the robbers, who was transferred to Abu Jubeiha Hospital.”

The source also reported that in the same place, armed men beat up the owner of a rickshaw, before stealing the vehicle from him.

He said the people in the area strongly criticise these attacks “in light of the presence of heavily armed forces guarding mining plants while citizens remain victims of thieves”.
