Army officers accused of 'severely beating' displaced
Three residents from Bendessey camp in Central Darfur have reportedly been subjected to severe beatings by Sudanese army officers.
A displaced person recounted to Radio Dabanga that three army officers entered a home on the north side of the camp on Wednesday evening, 29 November.
When the two female home owners, Aisha Jebarallah Adam and Kaltouma Awad Jumaa, confronted the officers they were assaulted with rifle butts, the source claims. Also, another camp resident, Abbaker Isaaq, was beaten when he tried to rescue the women.
The source said that the camp's sheikh escalated the incident to the area's army commander and police. He added that a meeting has been scheduled for Sunday to discuss the repeated violations and abuse by members of the armed forces and the police.
