The youth leader of Nierteti in Central Darfur, Mohamed El Tijani Seif, is the latest person to be detained by security services following the meeting last week between representative of the displaced and US Special Envoy Donald Booth.

Saif was detained by agents of the security services at Nierteti Grand Market on Wednesday morning. His arrest, preceded by that of Omda Eisa Mohamed Rashid, Adam Hamid Adam and Ahmed Abdallah Omer, brings the number of detainees following Booth’s visit to 11.

The coordinators of the displaced persons of Central Darfur appealed to the US administration, its special envoy in Sudan Donald Booth and its embassy to Khartoum to immediately intervene to release the detainees.

Security services in Nierteti arrested eight people on Sunday, and released them later. Sources told Radio Dabanga that the security services released two people on Monday and Tuesday.
