Sudan: Militants Kill Camp Resident

Dankoj Camp — Residents from camp Dankoj in Saraf Omra locality, North Darfur, accused a pro-government militia of killing a displaced man on Sunday night, 18 November, they told Radio Dabanga.

The displaced Idriss Issa Nahar was killed at the eastern sector of the camp when two gunmen driving a motorcycle, opened fire on him, according to an eye-witness.

He said the perpetrators went to the victim's home at 9:40pm and, calling out his name, asked him to come outside. The moment Nahar stepped out, the witness continued, he was shot dead and the perpetrators fled.

According to the source, such incidents, along with looting, happen continuously at the camp. He explained they informed the police about the attack, but that it arrived too late at the scene.

'No interference'

Also at Saraf Omra, displaced from three camps have complained about herders letting their livestock graze on their farmers for more than a week now.

Local authorities have not interfered in the case, the displaced told Radio Dabanga, despite their repeated appeals for protection of their farms.

Camps residents added they have also notified UNAMID about the incidents.
