Two people were killed and four others were wounded in a road robbery in Gireida in South Darfur on Monday. Herders shot a farmer in North Darfur’s Tawila.

Eyewitnesses reported to Radio Dabanga that ten gunmen riding on camels opened fire on a commercial vehicle en route from Sirgeila to Gireida on Monday evening.

“Eisa Adam and Ahmed Mohamed were fatally hit. Abdallah Ibrahim, Awadallah Abdelkarim, El Sayer Yahya, and Omar Ibrahim were wounded,” one of them said.

“The robbers seized the money and property from the passengers, loaded the goods on their camels, and fled.”

In the area of Susawa, north of Tabit, Mahjoub Hari was seriously wounded when he attempted to chase livestock from his farm.

“Two herders entered their camels and cows into his farm. When he tried to get rid of the animals, the intruders shot him,” another farmer reported.

He said that a police force seized the herds and took them to Tawila. The herders fled.
