​Killing and Looting by the Janjaweed militia in North Darfur - 17th March 2015


A group of IDPs who were travelling from Al Fasher to Tawila on a pickup car owned by Salih Dahab, were attacked by Janjaweed militia who looted the car and killed, Atiya Ali Abdalla 49 years (f) , Hawa Suleiman Salih 23 years (f), and injured four (4):

1- Souad Adam Abdelhamid 14 years (f)

2- Elshiekh Abakr Saboon 63 years
3- Alfaki Salih Hamad 70 years
4- Elsadig Ahmed Dictor 11 years

SUDO UK calls on the Government to disband the Rapid Support Forces as well as the Janjaweed as these are consistently committing human rights abuses in Darfur. All those individuals or groups responsible for committing human rights violations must be brought to justice.

SUDO UK calls on UNAMID to take strong action in order to fulfil its mandate, including its obligation to “prevent attacks against civilians, within its capability and areas of deployment, without prejudice to the responsibility of the Government of the Sudan”, and the requirement “to investigate and hold accountable those who are responsible, and promote efforts to disarm the Janjaweed and other militias”.
