Man, boy killed by armed herders in Darfur
Four people were killed and wounded in Central Darfur in two separate incidents last week.
Speaking to Radio Dabanga, a farmer reported from Shattaia locality in South Darfur that armed herders on horses raided the land of his colleague Yasin Zakariya Siraj on Thursday.
“They immediately began to shoot,” he said. “Yasin was killed instantly. His wife Halima Mohamed Suleiman and his brother Jaafar were seriously wounded.”
Ibrahim Adam Daoud (12) was shot dead near Nierteti in north-western Central Darfur on Friday morning.
A listener stold this station that militant herdsmen attacked a group of displaced people who were returning home after collecting firewood west of Nierteti. “They seized two of their donkeys loaded with wood and straw.”
“A rapidly formed search posse hunted down the thieves,” he said. “In the ensuing gunfight, Daoud was fatally hit by a stray bullet.”
