The headquarters of Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in the area of Muzbat in Umm Baru, North Darfur, has been pillaged by militiamen.

The independent MP for Umm Baru and Kornoi, Tina Mohamed Ahmed Minawi Deghih, told Radio Dabanga that the group of militiamen were travelling in a convoy of 30 vehicles from Kutum and Kabkabiya to Umm Baru locality.

They reportedly stripped the entire contents of the MSF office, including medicine, solar panels, computers, and office equipment, as well as money and personal belongings.

The militiamen then proceeded to pillage Um Haraz and Orschi markets, Deghih said.
