On Thursday, a group of militiamen on camels ambushed a number of tobacco farmers in a valley near Tabit. They wounded a man, gang-raped a girl, and stole more than 200 head of livestock.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, one of the farmers reported that “about 16 members of a government militia riding camels attacked us in Garango valley, north of Tabit.

“They severely beat us with their rifles and whips before they seized a 16-year-old girl and raped her alternately,” he said.

The attackers took 150 head of sheep and goats and 25 donkeys with them when they left.
