A displaced farmer was killed and three others were wounded in an attack by militiamen in Gireida in South Darfur on Saturday.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, a fellow farmer reported from Gireida told Radio Dabanga that a group of residents of the Gireida camp for the displaced went out on Saturday afternoon to clean their farmlands near Um Gubeisha village, 7 km northwest of Gireida town.

“About 20 militiamen on horses approached the group, and began to shoot at them. Hammadi Ahmed Eisa was killed instantly. Mubarak Ibrahim, Mohamed Abdallah, and Yousef Siddig were injured,” he said.

Ibrahim and Abdallah were transferred to the hospital of Gireida. Siddig who was seriously wounded, had to be taken to the Nyala Teaching Hospital.
