Sudan: Gunmen Kill Displaced Inside His Home

Silo Camp — Three gunmen believed to belong to a pro-government militia reportedly shot and killed a resident from camp Silo, in Mershing locality, South Darfur on Monday, 31 December.

A relative of the victim told Radio Dabanga that Suleiman Ibrahim Yassim was attacked inside his home at about 11pm.

According to him, the alleged perpetrators shot the victim five times before raiding his properties and stealing four of his donkeys.

Residents from camp Silo told Radio Dabanga about the increasing number of attacks and violations they have been suffering by pro-government militias in the last few days.

The reason for the attack on Yassim is not yet clear.
