Sudan: N. Darfur Civilian Killed for Asking Militia 'To Speak Politely'

Kabkabiya — Four pro-government militiamen shot a civilian dead who asked them to speak politely to him at a Kabkabiya market in North Darfur.

Onlookers said the gunmen wanted to purchase fuel at the city's market on Thursday and asked the victim Adam Adam to remove his car from in front of the pump and give way to them.

Adam asked the militia to speak to him "politely" prompting the gunmen to shoot him two times on the chest.

The victim, a resident of the Kirekir village, passed away upon arriving at the Kabkabiya hospital.
