Sudan: IDP Shot Dead By Pro-Goverment Miltia in Al-Hamidiya Camp

Zalingei — A pro-government militia killed a displaced person by the name of Abdel Kareem Gamrrudeen Ahmed, from Al-Hamidiya IDP camp on Friday. He was shot to dead inside his farm.

One of Zalingei camp coordinators told Radio Dabanga that a pro-government militia opened fire on Gamrrudeen Ahmed, IDP, inside his farm next to the camp. The farm is located at a distance of about 200 meters from a Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) station.

The camp coordinator pointed out that the incident was reported to UNAMID. He appealed to the governor of West Darfur to protect IDPs and to stop the violations and abuse of the pro-government militias. He told Radio Dabanga that he called upon UNAMID to carry out patrols in order to protect the camps.
