Sudan: Security Forces Arrest Four in S. Darfur, 'Unclear Motive'

Nyala — Security authorities arrested four civilians in Nyala, the capital of South Darfur, on Thursday evening for still unclear motives, sources told Radio Dabanga.

The detained were on their way to Marla, in She'eriya locality, also in South Darfur.

Members of the Darfur Bar Association, a self-declared independent NGO established by a group of lawyers, are demanding South Darfur authorities to "immediately release" the civilians.

Reports indicate the detainees are Al-Melik Musa Juma, Ahmed Dafalla Ahmed, Abdul Majid Ahmad Abakar and Essam Ahmed Abakar.
