The second incident occurred at an area called Mirair in Bielel locality, where militiamen attacked a resident inside his house and shot him and his son. The father died of his wounds.

‘Herders attack villages’

On Wednesday, herders assaulted the inhabitants of three villages in East Jebel Marra, along with robbing their money, belongings, and livestock.

A witness told Radio Dabanga that at 7 pm the group of herders of the Abbala tribe, “who were armed by the government”, attacked the villages of Hemeda, Dalma, and Shurfa. “They were riding on camels and wore military uniforms.”

He reported that the residents left the villages to Shangil Tobaya.
