Militiamen gang raped a girl (15) from the Deleig camp in Wadi Salih locality, on Thursday.

A Deleig camp sheikh informed Radio Dabanga that yesterday, at about 1 pm, government-backed militiamen ambushed three girls at Wadi Debelji, located 8 km northwest of Deleig town.

“They were busy collecting firewood, when they were attacked. Two managed to flee. The gunmen raped the third girl for a period of four hours.”

The sheikh said that the girl was found unconscious. “She was taken back to the camp.”
