Militia repeats massacre in Sudanese village

Khartoum, Jun 23 (Prensa Latina) Militiamen of the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) killed 17 residents in a village in central Sudan as they were leaving a mosque, members of the local Resistance Committee (RC) denounced today to the media.

Several people were injured during the assault, the spokesman for the RC, a voluntary civilian grouping organized by the transitional government, said.

They used large and medium caliber weapons against worshippers leaving the mosque in the town of Aser, Gezira state, after one of the Friday prayers, before penetrating and looting the area, according to the account.

The RSF is the armed wing of the warlord Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo in his struggle for power with the president of the Sovereign Transitional Council, a recognized transitional government led by General Abdel Fattah al Burhan, which began in April 2023 and shows no sign of abating.

Up to this month, the conflict has cost the lives of almost 15,000 people, some in deliberate attacks against civilians, and some 10,700,000 are displaced, according to conservative data released by unofficial sources in the absence of official statistics.
