Saraf Omra A group of seven women, including four sisters, have reportedly been attacked, beaten, robbed, and threatened on their farm in Saraf Omra locality in North Darfur. A witness told Radio Dabanga that the sisters Fatima, Khadija, Zainab, and Zahra Ahmed, along with three other women, were tending their farms when they were accosted by armed men who beat them with rifle butts before robbing them of money, mobile phones, jewellery, and all of their farming tools.
