Agents of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) detained five displaced men in Nierteti in Central Darfur today.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, multiple sources reported that Adam Siddig, of the Northern Nierteti camp for the displaced, and Abdelkarim Adam Abdelkarim, of the Southern Nierteti camp were held at the town's bus station this morning.

Nasreldin Yousef and Adam Mohamed, the owner of a welding workshop, were detained in the market of Nierteti. Ahmed El Tijani Abdeljabar Yousef was taken from a house in the Dar El Naeem district.

The sources said that the NISS officers seem to be still searching for others.

Last week, the US special envoy for Sudan, Donald Booth, paid a visit to Darfur. On Wednesday he spoke with a number of displaced in Nierteti.
