Gunfire at Eritrea border camp in Sudan | News24

Khartoum - Gunfire broke out on Monday at a refugee camp on the Sudanese border with Eritrea during a clash between refugees and police that left one policeman wounded, witnesses said.
About 300 people had gathered outside the administration office of Shagarab camp, which is largely populated by Eritreans, to protest security conditions, a local aid worker said.
They were upset after the recent kidnapping of asylum seekers from inside the camp, according to the witness.
"A number of police surrounded them. Then I heard shooting and the people scattered. I saw one police officer injured, and a soldier tried to help him," the aid worker added.
Another witness, an asylum seeker, said a crowd was yelling outside the camp's administration
