He said the injured were taken to the Unamid hospital at Sortoni.

Abu Zeid project

On Thursday at the Abu Zeid project in eastern Jebel Marra, militiamen shot and killed Omar Yagoub Ishag and stole 45 cows from him.

In a third incident, militiamen riding camels and horses attacked a number of herders at Martala, east of Fanga, and severely injured a number of them, including a woman. They stole dozens of livestock, taking them towards El Malam in South Darfur.


For more than a week, citizens of Kabkabiya locality have been living in terror caused by militiamen roaming the market and districts, and firing in the air.

Residents called on the authorities to prevent the militiamen from roaming the districts with their weapons and vehicles.
