The number of killings doubles at Kassab camp, N Darfur
So far a total of four people were killed at the Kassab camp in North Darfur. The Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp was recently attacked by pro-government militia.
Eye witnesses informed Radio Dabanga that the IDP student Fawzi Adam Abdullah and the policeman Mohammed Ahmed Abdasamd died from injuries caused by the attacks, bringing the total number of fatalities to four.
Sources said that pro-government militia stormed IDPs' homes, brutally hit men and women and arrested dozens of people saying they are searching for the killers of Al Waha locality's governor, Abdul Rahman Mohammed Issa. The governor was killed on Wednesday in Kutum town and pro-government militia accuse the killers of hiding in the camp. In addition, it has been reported that goods from shops and homes were looted and destroyed.
The IDPs from the Kassab camp demand that UNAMID enters the camp to protect them. They also demand that UNAMID stops the violations caused by pro-government militias against them.
