The person who shot them was later arrested due to the efforts of the neighbours and he admitted that he has shot them because some other people were in conflict with Al-Rasheed over a piece of land and had given him 1,000 Sudanese pounds to kill him and the promise that after the killing he will be paid another 9,000 pounds.

The general security situation in Nyala and other areas of Darfur is worsening and the government is losing control even over its own militia.

SUDO (UK) believes that unless the people of Darfur can be involved in resolving the conflict the current situation is going to worsen and therefore calls for a holistic approach in addressing the conflict.

SUDO(UK) calls for the African Union - United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) to exercise its responsibilities and protect civilians in Darfur.
