Girls raped by pro-government militia in Darfur camps

March 13 - 2012 Tabet

Three girls between the ages of 14 and 17 were raped on Monday by armed men in Tabet area of North Darfur.

The girls ventured out of the camp to collect firewood when they were attacked and raped by the men. They were found in a bad state, said a relative of one of the girls to Radio Dabanga.

Relatives reported the case to the government's central reserve forces who refused to track down the attackers who witnesses say fled to the Shangil Tobaya area.

The witness said the girls state is deteriorating as there is no hospital in the area they can visit for treatment.

Two girls from Amer Nakol camp were also raped by armed men in West Darfur on Monday.

Gunmen traveling on horses attacked the girls as they were traveling back from Saraf camp to Amer Nakol repeatedly raping them, said a witness.

The case was not reported to police as they reportedly fail to respond to incidents.

The witness said the girls are being treated locally and appealed to local authorities to stop gunmen from attacking displaced people and bring them to justice.
