December 1 - 2014 KUTUM

In Kutum town, North Darfur, a secondary school student was abducted last week. Two displaced women were severely beaten by unknown gunmen in the vicinity of the town.

“Teiba Ahmed Ishag was kidnapped by four militiamen in military uniforms last Wednesday. She was on her way home at Dababin district in Kutum town from El Gharbiya Secondary School for girls, when they seized her and took her to an unknown destination. She has not been released so far,” an activist reported to Radio Dabanga from Kutum on Sunday.

He added that a group of gunmen assaulted Halimah Abdallah and Fatima Mohamed Ishag, when they were collecting straw near Sangor village. They beat them with their whips and rifle butts, injuring one of them seriously in the face. Both victims were taken to a hospital in Kutum for treatment.
