On Friday, members of the Rapid Support Forces, Sudan’s main government militia, beat and detained two community leaders in North Darfur’s Tawila locality.
Witnesses told Radio Dabanga that paramilitaries of the Rapid Support Forces riding in four Land Cruisers raided the area of Fallujah in Tawila on Friday afternoon.
They accused Abakar El Rashid and Ismail Ahmed of being behind the disappearance of a number of livestock in the area ten days ago, and severely beat them.
The militiamen took El Rashid with them to El Malam. The sources could not give information about the whereabouts of Ahmed.
