West Jabal Marra –Dobo area -23rd March

One of the RSF members attacked and raped a 12-year-old girl at gun-point at a well in the Dobo area. When some of the locals rushed to the place, the perpetrator ran away. The police was informed but no action was taken.

On the 24th March Abdo Al-Majeed Ahmed Salim and Siddig Ahmed Ishaq were kidnapped from Dobo village by Janjaweed militias. The militia men claimed that they have two (2) missing camels and the villagers must pay the equivalent of the price of two camels for the release of their people. They also kidnapped one of the leaders and the negotiation still going on.

As a result of the recent heavy government bombing and apparent use of toxic substances fired from rockets in Bedu al-Raw, some diseases have occurred in the area, such as swellings of the throat, allergies and diarrhoea. These have killed a number of people including children, among them, Maryam Adam Musa and Ishaq Adam Abakr. Up to the date of this report no health organization has intervened.

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”.

SUDO UK calls on the health services, UNAMID, and medical ngos to aid those suffering from unidentified diseases in Bedu al-Row and investigate the alleged use of toxic rockets fired from government planes.
