Internally-Displaced-Persons Throngs of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) Sunday stormed the premises of the government of West Darfur State for fear of armed militia attacks. But, local security authorities forcefully evacuated them amid conflicting reports about fatalities in the incident.

The IDPs fled Moli village, 20 KM South of El-Genaina to the state capital after the murder of a pastoralist near their area, fearing revenge attacks.

The state’s government spokesperson, Abdallah Mustafa, told Sudan Tribune that the villagers headed towards El-Genaina , hoping to find refuge in the nearby IDP camps.

He said some IDPs began to sabotage and burning cars and spread chaos. Then the situation forced the authorities to intervene.

He stressed the situation is under control and returned to normal after the evacuation of protesters from the government building.
