Gunmen kill two soldiers in Darfur
Five camel herders, one of them driving a motorcycle, opened fire on five soldiers from Dubo El Omda garrison in east Jebel Marra on Friday night, witnesses told Radio Dabanga. Two soldiers were killed, two were wounded.
The soldiers were working at a charcoal factory near Dubo El Madrasa.
The soldiers killed were Mohamed Bashir Yahya and Abdellatif Dauod. The wounded are Abdelgadir Ali and Hamdan Saleh.
Haroun Eisa Abakar was wounded when a vehicle carrying passengers from Dunkouj to Nierteti was robbed in Central Darfur on Saturday.
The gunmen stole SDG 3,000 ($ 57.3 *) from driver Mohamed Adam, SDG 3,000 from passenger Suleiman Omar and SDG 3,000 from the vehicle's assistant driver Musa Abdelmajeed.
* USD 1 = SDG 52.33 at time of publishing. As effective foreign exchange rates can vary in Sudan, Radio Dabanga bases all SDG currency conversions on the daily middle US Dollar rate quoted by the Central Bank of Sudan (CBoS).
