A group of militiamen attacked Donki Tema village near Kutum in North Darfur on Saturday, and stole more than thousand head of livestock.

The independent MP for El Tina, Um Baru and Karnoi constituencies, Mohamed Minawi, informed Radio Dabanga that a group of Abbala militiamen riding in three Land Cruisers mounted with Dushka machine-guns raided the village in the afternoon.

“They beat and whipped the villagers before robbing them of their 1,485 camels, cows, and sheep,” he said.

He reported that the North Darfur governor, Abdelwahid Yousef, strongly condemned the militia attacks on villages north and east of Kutum during the past two weeks.

“After a meeting with a delegation of affected villagers, the governor instructed the formation of a committee to investigate the attacks.”
