Seven members of the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) held in Shala prison in the North Darfur capital of El Fasher will be executed in the coming days.

JEM spokesman Jibril Adam Bilal reported to Radio Dabanga that the prison authorities notified the prisoners on Sunday that their execution will take place within “two days”.

El Sadig Abakar Yahya, Abdelrazeg Daoud Abdelsayed, Ibrahim Sharif Yousef, Hassan Bishara Abdallah, Adam El Tom Adam, Mohamed Adam Hasaballah, and Abulgasim Abdallah Abob were captured in Darfur in 2010, and sentenced to death three years later.
