Two men were shot dead by militants at Fanga, north-east of Jebel Marra on Tuesday morning.

One of the relatives of the victims told Radio Dabanga that four militants riding camels opened fire on Haroun Yousef (45) and Hamid Ibrahim (35), as they made their way back from Fanga market to their village at Dolo area. The murderers stole the men's money, food commodities, and two donkeys.

On Tuesday the higher secondary and basic schools in Mukjar in Central Darfur opened after more than two weeks of closure because of the deterioration of the security situation after a series of incidents which led to deaths, injuries and a rape.

On Tuesday higher secondary school teachers in Mukjar told Radio Dabanga that schools were re-opened yesterday amid concern of a return to the tension in the locality again.

A woman from Mukjar said the market has been closed for more than two weeks which made shopping difficult as a result of traders’ fear of return to lawlessness and looting of the market.

Witnesses also stressed to Radio Dabanga that a government delegation was still in Mukjar carrying out ongoing negotiations with the parties to resolve the issue and return comprehensive t security to Mukjar locality.
