A displaced child was shot dead in Bielel locality, South Darfur, on Wednesday.

The Sheikh of El Salam camp in Bielel informed Radio Dabanga that an armed herder opened fire on the 14-year-old Nasr Haroun Ishag Khareef and killed him on the spot, when he was taking livestock out for grazing.

Nasr Haroun worked as a herder for Osman Mousa, the Omda of the Mahariya tribe, Sheikh Mahjoub Adam Tabeldiya said.

“Mousa carried the dead body to El Salam with a group of his companions. He promised the people to hand over the culprit to the police and abide by the decision of the relatives for blood [compensation] money.”

El Salam camp witnessed the death of a boy (9 years) on 21 June, when a vehicle of the paramilitary forces moved through the camp with high speed and ran over him. Camp residents staged a protest in front of the police office.
