A large group of militiamen attacked the village of Dali in North Darfur's Tawila locality today.

A resident of Dali told Radio Dabanga that militiamen in a Land Cruiser and others on camels raided the village at 2 pm.

“They beat and whipped a number of villagers, before they robbed us of our belongings, and set fire to the houses. 320 homes burned to ashes,” he said. “We all fled to Tabit.”

He added that the militiamen were commanded by a captain of the paramilitary Border Guards called Ibrahim.  

Dali village was raided before, on 21 December last year. A large group of militiamen robbed the villagers. 800 houses burned down. The residents fled to Tabit, but returned later and rebuilt their homes again.
