A group of militiamen beat up five residents of the Ban Jadeed camp for the displaced in Sirba locality on Wednesday.
A camp elder told Radio Dabanga that government-backed militiamen ambushed three displaced women not far from the camp. When they resisted the attackers, two men from the camp intervened.
“Maimouna Hassan, Hawa Ibrahim, Fatima Adam, Hammad Adam, and Mohammed Adam were subjected to severe beating and whipping. All five had to be treated at Sirba hospital,” he reported.
