A displaced man was killed and four others seriously injured in a bus accident in North Darfur on Tuesday.
Yahya Abakar Mohamed (47) died when a bus carrying 48 passengers, en route from Kabkabiya to Jebel ‘Amer gold mine, was involved in an accident. The circumstances of the accident itself were not known at time of publishing, however witnesses told Radio Dabanga that Mohamed was buried at the scene, and the injured were transferred to Kabkabiya hospital.
Also in North Darfur, two women died when the Toyota they were travelling in was fired upon by militiamen. The incident occurred on the road from Korma to Kobe, 45 km northwest of state capital El Fasher. Witnesses said that the gunmen “randomly opened fire on the passengers which led to the death of two women and seriously injuring others.” The attackers then stole all of the money, mobile phones and belongings of the passengers and fled.
