A militia attacked a village in North Darfur on Thursday, and is reportedly responsible for the death of a merchant. Another person was seriously wounded when the militia members opened fire on them.

Nine militiamen entered Um Liona (or Leona) in a Land Cruiser with a machine gun mounted on top, a witness reported. They opened fire on the merchant Suleiman Bushra and shot him dead on the spot.

“They robbed his money and other belongings. One other person was wounded, Kinein Adam, but the gunmen fled and got away.”
