A group of gunmen ambushed a passenger lorry in the area of Taringa, Central Darfur, on Thursday.

One of the passengers told Radio Dabanga that the vehicle was on its way from Nierteti to Zalingei, capital of Central Darfur.

“Seven Janjaweed in military uniforms suddenly opened fire at the lorry, forcing the driver to stop.

“They ordered us to disembark, and beat all of us severely with their whips, before they stripped us of our money, totaling SDG710 ($120), our cell phones, belongings, and our clothes,” he reported.
