The lifeless body of a North Darfur farmer has been found by a rescue party after he and a comrade were abducted by armed men on Monday.

A relative of the victims told Radio Dabanga that four men riding camels abducted Mohamed Adam and Ibrahim Ahmed from their farm near Martal village, 7 kilometres west of Khazan Tunjur in Tawila locality, at gunpoint on Monday evening.

The relative said that a local rescue team went out on Tuesday morning and found the dead body of Adam lying in the open. The fate of the second hostage Ahmed is still unknown.

They said the incident was reported to the armed forces in Martal area but there has been no response from them.
