In several violent incidents on Sunday, a man was killed in South Darfur, while five displaced people were attacked and injured in Tabit, North Darfur.

Butcher Adam Mohamed Farsha was shot dead in El Radoom locality in South Darfur by unknown gunmen. One of the relatives of Farsha told Radio Dabanga that unknown gunmen opened fire on the butcher when he was in the way from Wedhajam market to Shurrab village.

The attackers instantly killed him, seized SDG2000 ($71*) from him and fled.

In Tabit in North Darfur, armed herders opened fire and seriously wounded five people at Kurfla area, 5 km west of Tabit. A family member of one of the victims told Radio Dabanga yesterday that eight herders on camels opened fire on a group of displaced people who returned to Kurfla for farming.

The gunmen wounded Omar Abdallah, Ahmed Omar Abdallah, Mohamed Ishag Hamid, Suleiman Haroun Yahya and Aisha Musa Omar who all were transferred to El Fasher for treatment.

On August 7 herders attacked a group of farmers south of Tabit when they tried to drive away the herders’ livestock, upon which they opened fire. This resulted in the killing of a woman.
