Militiamen killed two people and wounded six others in separate incidents in North and South Darfur on Tuesday.
Umda Mukhtar Bosh, coordinator of the Tawila camps in North Darfur, reported to Radio Dabanga that around noon a group of gunmen raided the house of Mudawi Suleiman Abdallah in the area of Neema, five km south of Tawila town in North Darfur. “They shot him dead on the spot.”
A “rescue team” formed by villagers, paramilitaries of the Popular Defence Forces, and army soldiers traced the attackers, and found them in one of the nomad settlements in the area of Jeili, east Tawila. In the ensuing gunfight, three members of the rescue team sustained injuries. The attackers fled.
In North Darfur’s Saraf Umra locality, three people were injured and three others went missing in a clash between a local rescue team and armed cattle rustlers.
At El Masani district in Nyala, capital of South Darfur, armed robbers shot dead merchant Ali Ala’eldin Hussein on Tuesday morning.
His neighbour, Ibrahim Younes, told Radio Dabanga that three gunmen stormed the house of Hussein at about 3 am. “They clearly wanted to plunder his shop near the house. When Hussein resisted, they shot at him, killing him instantly.”
