Displaced man shot dead by pro government militia

May 30 - 2012 Dummah camp

A displaced man was shot dead by pro government militia and his body dumped in Dummah camp near Nyala in South Darfur.

Witnesses told Radio Dabanga gunmen are frequently attacking displaced people as they leave the camps, raping women with impunity despite camp residents repeatedly reporting the incidents to the police.

One witness described the situation for the displaced as harsh, saying they have not received any humanitarian aid for over six months, adding that camp leaders have raised the issue with officials in Nyala on more than one occasion without getting any meaningful response.
