A man has been murdered in Tawila locality, North Darfur. In a separate incident in the same locality, a woman was raped on her farm near Sharafa on Sunday.

Two armed men, wearing military uniforms, attacked Ibrahim Abdel Majid Ahmed and shot him dead at Farig Tamu, 10 kilometres west of Khazan Tunjur in East Jebel Marra. A witness told Radio Dabanga that they stole 20 animals from him, and fled.

A family member told Radio Dabanga yesterday that her cousin left Sharafa, in the area popularly known as East Jebel Marra, on Sunday morning to work on her tomato farm. 15 kilometres south of Tabit, two armed men riding camels assaulted and repeatedly raped her.

The men also let their camels graze in the tomato field, and stole the tomatoes she had picked.
