Sudan: 'Sudanese Air Force Bombs Injure Two Children', North Darfur

East Jebel Marra — Two children were injured when the Sudanese air forces bombed their village of Abu Zayd, in East Jebel Marra, North Darfur, on Monday morning, 21 January.

Residents told Radio Dabanga that Adam Mohamed, seven years old, and Maymouna Yahiya eight years old, were hurt after a bomb hit their town at 8:00am.

It appears that the government was targeting water wells in the area, eyewitnesses suggested.

Besides hurting the children, the shelling also killed eight cows and three sheep, according to testimonies.

Abu Zayd village is reportedly the site of an agriculture project set-up by the government of Sudan.
