Unidentified gunmen killed a 13-year-old shepherdess in Shataya in South Darfur on Sunday. The day before, two women were raped in Saraf Omra in North Darfur.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, a listener reported that Rayan Ahmed Saleh was grazing the family’s sheep together with her brothers in the area of Dogoudse in Shataya locality, when three gunmen riding on camels wanted to steal the animals.

When the children protested, they fired at the girl. She was killed instantly. The thieves left with the sheep.
