Abbala militants rape '3 displaced women' in W Darfur

March 25 - 2013 MURNEI CAMP

A group of militants raped three displaced women on Saturday in Murnei camp, West Darfur. A relative of one of the victims told Radio Dabanga that the militants are Abbala tribesmen.

The Abbala militants attacked the three women who were on their way back to the camp from their farms in Wadi Tour, south of Murnei, the relative added. Another source said that the Abbala militants raped the women at gunpoint and added that they released the women late Saturday night.

The source revealed that the three victims were taken to Murnei hospital for treatment. Moreover, the source complained about the high percentage of attacks on displaced people, women in particular, by pro-government militia.

He appealed to the authorities and UNAMID to protect the displaced and arrest the perpetrators and take them to justice.
