On Monday, two policemen were shot dead in Tullus locality in South Darfur.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, a farmer reported from Sargeila in Tullus that a group of militant herdsmen wanted to graze their camels on the land of his neighbour, and threatened to kill him if he would chase away the amimals.

After having received a complaint from the farmer, the police of Sargeila sent a lieutenant-led force to the site of the incident, which ordered the herders to leave the farm.

The gunmen however refused to comply on the grounds that they were members of the Rapid Support Forces militia, and started shooting.

The force commander and a policeman were killed instantly, the farmer said.
