​Various human rights violations by Janjaweed militiamen in Darfur 19th December 2014



When farmers tried to stop a group of Janjaweed from forcibly entering their farm to graze their livestock, the Janjaweed opened fire on the farmers killing Saif Al-Din Bahr Al-Din and Abdulhameed Adam Abdulkareem. Although the police and UNAMID were informed by the IDPs about aggressive Janjaweed activities in the area even before this incident, they have still not taken any action to protect civilians or to pursue perpetrators of such actions.


Two female IDPs, aged 25 and 20 respectively, were raped in their farm by 6 Janjaweed men on Camel back. The raped women were later found by other IDPs and taken to the camp clinic. Police were informed.


Abdulkareem Osman and Hussein Abdulkareem Osman were kidnapped by a group of Janjaweed militiamen, driving 4x4 vehicles, whilst they were on their way to the mosque to attend Friday prayer. The police and UNAMID have been informed.
