Hundreds of Sudanese had held a protest the previous day in the Central Darfur state calling on the government to secure their properties following recent incidents of killings and looting. A week prior, unidentified armed men killed three farmers near the town of Nertiti in Central Darfur, triggering the ire of residents who long complained of lack of security in the area. AFP photo
