Resistance committees in the localities of Sirba and El Geneina in West Darfur, situated along the border with Chad, carried out a protest in front of the state government secretariat in El Geneina, the state capital.

The protestors condemn the recent killings, rapes and thefts, and demanded that the perpetrators be arrested and brought to justice.

Hasan Haroun, a member of the Sirba resistance committee, told Radio Dabanga that they handed over a memorandum to the governor in which they demanded the arrest of the perpetrators of the murders and rapes that occurred recently in Sirba locality.

They also want the police in the localities to have a higher status and more senior officers.
