A child and a farmer were severely injured in two separate incidents in South Darfur's East Jebel Marra on Friday.

Herders trespassed with their livestock the farms in the area of Martal. When the farmers confronted the trespassers, they opened fire into the air. 12-year-old Yousef Haroun was wounded, and the farmers were forced to flee the area.
