The Sudan Liberation Movement led by Abdel Wahid El Nur (SLM-AW) claims that government forces planted landmines in Kutum locality, North Darfur.

Mustafa Tambur, the military spokesman for the SLM-AW reported to Radio Dabanga that heavy rainfall exposed 23 landmines in the area of Fonu, near Kutum town.

“The mines were buried along a strip of two kilometers, to hamper the movement of the Darfur resistance forces”, Tambour explained.

He warned the citizens in the area, “especially children”, not to approach or touch suspicious objects, and demanded from the international community to pressure the Khartoum regime to stop planting landmines.
