In Gireida, South Darfur, a woman was killed and nine others wounded on Friday when militiamen opened fire on them when they were collecting firewood.
A relative of the deceased reported to Radio Dabanga that on Friday morning Janjaweed opened fire on a group of women from the Gireida camp for the displaced when they were collecting firewood south of the camp. Hawa Adam Haroun died instantly.
The militiamen beat and tortured the other women from 10am until late in the evening. Nine women were injured, five of them seriously. The gunmen robbed them of six donkeys.
The relative added that the Janjaweed repeatedly threatened to kill, lash, and beat anyone who leaves the camp to collect firewood or straw.
