Armed bandits have struck twice in separate incidents of highway robbery at Hillet Ahmed near Tabit in North Darfur over the past two days.
Hillet Ahmed is on the main road between the North Darfur capital of El Fasher and the South Darfur capital of Nyala.
In both cases, the bandits included ‘men wearing military uniforms’.
On Monday, passengers on a bus travelling from Shangil Tobya to Zamzam camp near El Fasher were robbed of all of their valuables.
On Tuesday afternoon, a vehicle carrying 14 passengers was intercepted by gunmen driving a Land Cruiser.
One of the passengers told Radio Dabanga that five gunmen – two wearing military uniforms – took all the passengers’ money. Mobile phones, and luggage and left in their Land Cruiser.
