A secondary school student of the Kassab camp for the displaced in North Darfur's Kutum was shot on Thursday evening.

The incident occurred when Fadel Abdelkarim was reviewing his lessons near the camp, a Kassab camp resident informed Radio Dabanga.

“Two gunmen passed by and demanded his mobile telephone,” she said. “When he refused to do so, they shot him in his hands, and took his phone.”

The 17-year-old student was transferred to El Fasher hospital for treatment.
