On Saturday, militiamen in two vehicles intercepted a group of young people in the area of Girgo, 20 kilometres west of Kabkabiya town.

“Adam Haroun, Noureldin Younis, Abdelmutalib Siddig, Badreldin Abdallah Haroun, Abdellatif Mousa, and Hawa Mohamed Abaker refused to hand their mobiles, and were beaten with axes,” a relative of one of the victims told Radio Dabanga.

Some of the victims were taken to Kabkabiya Hospital, while those who sustained serious injuries were transferred to a hospital in El Fasher, capital of North Darfur.
