ZALINGEI LOCALITY (22 May .) - A man was killed and three houses were burned after a random shooting by a group of Abbala herders in the village of Kulkul in Zalingei locality, Central Darfur, on Tuesday.

The coordinator of the Central Darfur camps told Radio Dabanga that a group of Abbala tribesmen fired into the air indiscriminately while moving around in the streets of Kulkul for about an hour and a half on Tuesday evening. “Adam Ibrahim Mohamed (62) was wounded, and three houses burned to the ground. The 600 villagers were terrified.”

“Mohamed was transferred to a hospital in Saraf Omra in North Darfur,” the coordinator added. He called on the UN and the international community to protect the civilians from these attacks, and on the ruling National Congress Party to stop these militias’ assaults on unarmed civilians in Darfur.
