Two militiamen raped a 15 year-old girl of Deleig camp for the displaced in Wadi Salih locality on Saturday.

The incident occurred when two government-backed militiamen riding on camels intercepted a group of six displaced, two men and four women, early on Saturday evening, an activist informed Radio Dabanga from Deleig camp.

“The displaced were on their way back from Wadi Jamein, when the militiamen stopped them by shooting into the air. The attackers seized the girl, and started beating her severely with their whips. They then raped her alternately for two hours, from 6pm until 8 pm.”

The source said that the residents of the camp formed a “rescue team” that found the victim, “in a very bad metal and physical condition”, in the area of Goubi, 6 km east of the camp. “The incident was reported to the police of Deleig.”
