A man was killed and two young women were gang-raped in the area south of Tabit in Tawila locality, North Darfur, on Tuesday.

“Janjaweed riding camels ambushed two of El Nur Ahmed's nieces on Tuesday afternoon. They were tending our farm near Beji village, 15 kilometres south of Tabit,” a relative of the victims informed Radio Dabanga.

“When Ahmed tried to protect his nieces, they shot him dead on the spot. They mutilated his body, before they raped the women (aged 22 and 18) alternately,”he said.

The body and the two women were taken to the hospital of Shangil Tobaya. The incident was not reported to the police.

Ahmed was buried this (Wednesday) morning, the relative added.
