Chinese labour targeted by Sudanese youth

The marginalization of some Sudanese youth has created such frustration among them that they have resorted to violence. A Chinese engineer was shot and killed on Wednesday, September 28. Three other workers were wounded. An entire oil drilling project has been closed down. Two days prior to this incident, a truck was burned down, and two cars were burned, and drilling machine burned.

This took place in South Kordovan, where local Misseriya have been denied jobs working on the oil project. It's viewed as a matter of injustice.

Local people have complained that the Sudanese military is preventing food basics such as sugar flour an oil from being brought into the region.
