Four paramilitaries of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) died when their vehicle collided with a commercial truck south of the North Darfur capital of El Fasher on Monday evening.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, an eyewitness reported that four RSF militiamen in a Land Cruiser approached the bus station at Zamzam camp for the displaced near El Fasher.

“They seized 15 people, including drivers, travel agents, and tire shop keepers at gunpoint. They took them to the open where they beat and robbed them of their money and mobile telephones,” he said.

“The militiamen then turned to the El Fasher-Nyala road,” the witness continued. “There, their car collided with a commercial lorry. The four culprits were killed instantly. The lorry caught fire, and burned to ashes.”
