Sudan: Abbala Members Carry Out Attack in South Darfur Camp

El-Salam Camp — A group of Abbala members attacked the market of camp El-Salam, in South Darfur on Friday evening, 18 January.

The militants, riding camels, carried out the assault because one of their fellow tribesmen was killed in the area and they wanted to receive blood money, they claimed.

Witnesses told Radio Dabanga that shops were closed and camp's residents fled to their homes following the events at the market.

Authorities intervened and tried preventing the Abbala men from raiding the site, but the perpetrators did not follow the orders, a displaced said.
