Two merchants were shot, resulting in the death of one of them, in a market south of Kabkabiya, North Darfur, on Thursday.

A witness said that pro-government militiamen had bought meat from the weekly butchers' market of Kala, but refused to pay butcher Mohamed Sulaiman Isa the full amount.

“When Isa asked them to pay the money, they refused, and opened fire on him. But they did not hit him in the head,” he said. Instead, Mohamed Omar Abdelkarim, the merchant with a stall next to Isa's, received a fatal shot, and was killed immediately.
