Militia kills at least 20 civilians in West Darfur

Dec 10 2006 IOL report - Militia kills at least 20 civilians in Darfur:
At least 20 civilians are dead after Sudanese militiamen ambushed a convoy of refugees in western Darfur, the UN said today.

The pro-government janjaweed militia used rocket-propelled grenades to attack a commercial convoy of refugees returning on Saturday to the town of El Geneina, an international aid worker said.

Janjaweed set fire to the bodies, and rioting erupted around the town today, he said.

"We have confirmed reports of at least 20 dead," said Radhia Achouri, spokeswoman for the United Nations in Sudan.

The aid worker put the death toll higher, saying as many as 30 people had been killed in the attack.
