Sudanese police arrests IDPs from Al Hamidiya camp in Central Darfur
The Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps' coordinator told Radio Dabanga that five IDPs from the Al Hamidiya camp were arrested yesterday from a market in Zalingei, the capital of Central Darfur. During the arrests the police followed a new approach using undercover policemen rather than the security forces. He added the arrests are a consequence of incidents that took place in the Al Hamidiya camp earlier this month when two people died.
The detainees are: Adam Adam Hussein, a driver also known as Phillips, Musamil Musa Sumqeri, Adam Suliman Mohammed, a businessman also known as Dokka, Mudesir Abdul Mawla, also a businessman and Nur Mohammad Yaqub.
The camps' coordinator said border guards led by Abu-Manga who abducted nine IDPs earlier this month are asking for a ransom of 900 million Sudanese pounds in order not to kill the hostages.
Last Monday, the IDP Maryam Haroen Ismail died as a result of an infection caused by her injuries. She was beaten up this month, along with four other IDPs, while collecting wood for fire near the camp.
