Zalingei — A pro-government militia opened fire on gold miners in Central Darfur, causing them to flee. Mohammed Toro was wounded on his right thigh during the incident.
Witnesses told Radio Dabanga a militia composed of six armed men approached the mine on a Land Cruiser on Sunday evening in the Hashaba locality in Zalingei. They opened fire and looted the property of the mineworkers, which included 23 thousand pounds and several gold detectors. The armed men consequently fled in the direction of the Hamadiya camp.
Witnesses claim that the militia was composed of the same men who attacked the Hamadiya IDP camp and carried out several robberies on Thursday (http://www.radiodabanga.org/node/33282).
