A boy sustained bullet wounds while two other basic school pupils were arrested by members of the Sudanese army in Mukjar locality, Central Darfur, on Sunday evening. Three passengers sustained injuries in a roadside robbery in Mukjar that evening.

A witness reported to Radio Dabanga on Monday that military staff attacked and attempted to steal the phones of the three basic school pupils Adam Mohamed Abaker, El Nazir Adam Ibrahim, and Abulgasim Adam Mohamed. They were on their way home from the market in Mukjar.

“When Abaker resisted, they shot him, seriously injuring him,” the witness said. “He was transferred to Mukjar's health centre for treatment, while the two others were arrested on charges of resisting military personnel.”

Roadside robbery

An armed robbery on a commercial vehicle on the road from Wasatani to Mukjar caused injuries to Hassan Abdallah, Saleh Juma, and Haroun Abaker Adam on Sunday evening. The robbery was carried out by pro-government militiamen riding camels, about 5 kilometres from Mukjar, a witness said.

Abdallah was seriously wounded and the doctors in Mukjar decided to transfer him to Nyala hospital, according to the witness. “But he wasn't transferred until Monday because they had no transport.”

Nyala road accident

At least 19 people were injured, including ten who are in a very serious condition, when their vehicle overturned on its way to the Jebel 'Amer area in North Darfur. The injured were taken to Nyala teaching hospital.
