Two mothers were shot in Pinyin, Mezam Division in the North West region today.
Residents of the said village currently on the run say they were shot by soldiers who invaded their homes in the early hours of the day. The army, they say, blames villagers for being related to separatist fighters, reason for the attack.
The situation in Pinyin, they say, is worsened by the rains that have left them in the bushes with no shelter.
The military invasion of Pinyin comes after some soldiers were killed by separatist fighters last week.
It also follows the killing and beheading of a military man in Babadjou, West region today.
“Many people have been arrested and two women confirmed to be mothers of ‘amba boys’ have been shot and killed. They were pulled from their houses and killed,” another source confirms.
The death toll remains unknown as the attack ensues.
