A man was killed by gunmen near Dubo El Omda in eastern Jebel Marra on Monday morning. A displaced man in Central Darfur has been abducted.

Armed men shot and killed Abdelshafee Eisa Mohamed near Robkona, 15 km south of Dubo El Omda in Tawila locality on Monday morning. The attack occurred two days after two villagers were killed by armed herders west of Dubo El Omda. Tawila locality is popularly known as eastern Jebel Marra.

A family member of Eisa Mohamed told Radio Dabanga that seven gunmen on camels intercepted him as he was on his way to a water well to fetch water for his cattle. He was killed on the spot.

The attackers seized twelve cows and a horse and fled.
