A boy from Um Haleeb camp for the displaced near Gireida was crushed to death by a vehicle of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in South Darfur on Sunday.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga from Um Haleeb camp, a sheikh reported that an RSF convoy of about 150 vehicles passed through the camp, driving at an excessively high speed.

“One of the cars hit Adam Ali Mohammed (13). He died instantly,” he said. “The car did not stop.”

The sheikh added that the militia troops fired heavily into the air while they were passing, which “terrified the camp residents immensely”.
