A displaced woman of Korli camp south of Kass in South Darfur was shot dead by unknown gunmen, while in a separate incident, a displaced man was abducted.

A number of witnesses told Radio Dabanga that at 1:00 am on Monday three armed men wearing military uniforms raided the home of Fatima Abakar at Korli camp, shot her dead on the spot and beat a number of displaced people.

On Tuesday, a military force on a Land Cruiser raided the area of Jamira, north of Kass in search of men accused of collaborating with the armed movements, detained Ibrahim Zakariya Ibrahim from his house and took him to the military garrison in Kass.

Witnesses said the military intelligence denied the family of Ibrahim a visit and expressed concern he might be subjected to torture or ill treatment.

They appealed to humanitarian and human rights organisations to intervene to release him.

Police beating

On Tuesday, police severely beat and injured three youths at Tabit area in Tawila, North Darfur.

One of the victims’ relatives told Radio Dabanga that Tabit police telephoned Ayoub Mohamed, 28, Yousef Ishag, 29, and Adam Yahya to appear before the police station.

The witnesses said that the three were immediately imprisoned and then beaten with sticks and whips, causing them injuries and were transferred to El Fasher Teaching Hospital.

Witnesses explained that they did not know the reasons and motives for imprisoning and beating the three youths.
