Two displaced men have been drowned in North Darfur after being washed away by floodwaters.

A witness told Radio Dabanga that the flood of the Bawa valley on Monday swept Saleh Abdallah Adam and Musa Ismael away while they were trying to cross the valley on their way from Kutum to Camp Kassab.

As previously reported by Radio Dabanga, rains and flash floods have caused the collapse of the Mesco Bridge which links North Darfur and South Darfur, just one month after it was built.

The collapse has led to disruption of all travel from El Fasher to Nyala and vice versa.
