Five gunmen have raped two women in Darfur's East Jebel Marra, under the threat of arms.

A woman from the area spoke to Radio Dabanga about the incident. “The rape occurred on Thursday at Mashrou Abu Zeid, in Goz Dor. Two women had gone out to fetch firewood.

“Gunmen intercepted them, pointed their weapons at their faces, and ordered them to take off their clothers and lie down,” the woman said. The men then repeatedly raped the two.

She denounced the continuous acts of humiliating sexual violence against women in East Jebel Marra.
