Militiamen set fire to several villages in the area of Korma, El Fasher locality, during the past two weeks.

“The residents had already sought protection at the Unamid base in the area,” an activist reported to Radio Dabanga from Korma.

“Tarja, northwest of Korma, was the most recent village that burned to the ground,” he added, saying that the purpose of the repeated torching is to prevent the people to return.

He appealed to the Sudanese authorities to intervene, and stop the destruction of villages in Darfur.
