A woman and her daughter were abducted from the vicinity of El Fasher by members of an armed force on Thursday. Robbers severely beat farmers in Darfur's East Jebel Marra when they stole their money and donkeys on Wednesday.

The abduction occurred at Dorma, 16 kilometres southwest of the state capital.

A relative of the abducted people told this station that a number of PDF members, riding camels, attacked the settlement in Dorma, where they grabbed Sayda Khalil Mohamed and her daughter Hawa Osman El Nur (16 years) and took them to an unknown destination.

The relative claimed to know the name of one of the abductors.

A complaint has been filed with the Commissioner of El Fasher, El Tijani Abdallah Saleh. The relative said that Saleh has instructed one of the Arab Omdas in the area, reportedly named Omer, to return the mother and daughter.

Farmers robbed

A listener told Radio Dabanga that armed robbers attacked farmers at Serle in East Jebel Marra on Wednesday. One of the farmers, Mousa Yagoub Nimeirei, sustained serious injuries and is in Tawila hospital for treatment.

The robbers took the farmers' money, property, and four donkeys. Farmers Gedo Mohamed Ahmed, Musa Yousif Ahmed Salim, and Amin Adam were also injured.
