Four people were killed, and four others wounded in an attack on a commercial convoy in North Darfur on Saturday. A villager was shot dead by militiamen in Central Darfur’s Bindisi on Monday.

One of the passengers reported to Radio Dabanga that militiamen riding in Land Cruisers mounted with Dushka machineguns opened fire on a convoy of four passenger lorries near Korma, on El Fasher-Kabkabiya road.

“Four passengers were fatally hit, and four others were injured. The militiamen then robbed all of us, destroyed one vehicle, and left with the other three,” he said. “The wounded were taken to a hospital in El Fasher for treatment.”


On Monday, militiamen attacked Abakar Ibrahim Abakar inside his home in the area of Kalam Basanan, west of Bindisi town.

A relative of the victim told Radio Dabanga that a group of gunmen stormed the house of Abakar, and shot him. “He died of his wounds upon his arrival at Bindisi hospital.”
