Two killed, one injured in Darfur attacks
A resident of Dahab Sherou village, east of Gireida in South Darfur, was fatally hit by bullets on Friday. Another man was wounded. In El Salam camp for the displaced, near Kabkabiya in North Darfur, a displaced man was killed on Saturday.
A resident of Dahab Sherou village reported to Radio Dabanga that a group of gunmen raided the village, firing heavily into the air.
“El Doum Adam El Jameel was killed instantly, Ali Mohamed Mousa was wounded,” he said. “The attackers then took El Jameel's horse, and fled.”
In El Salam camp, east of Kabkabiya town, Osman Mohamed Abdelshafi (36) was shot dead by two militiamen.
The coordinator of the Kabkabiya camps for the displaced related how a group of militiamen in a Land Cruiser stopped near the camp.
“Two of them disembarked and went into the camp, where they saw Abdelshafi's motorcycle parked in front of his sister's home. They entered her shelter demanding the victim give them the motorcycle's key. When he refused, they shot him dead in cold blood.”
The coordinator added that the two perpetrators were stopped by angry camp residents, before they could leave with the motorcycle. “When they ran away, one of them lost his rucksack containing a military uniform. We reported the incident to the police and handed them the rucksack, but they did not move to trace the killers.”
