A man was shot dead and three women were gang-raped in separate incidents in East Jebel Marra on Saturday and today.

In the village of Tarabo, south of Dubo El Omda, paramilitaries of the Rapid Support Forces on their way to Fanga opened fire on Yousef Haroun Adam. He died on the spot, an eyewitness reported to Radio Dabanga.

A group of seven militiamen ambushed two women on the Dali-Tabit road on Saturday morning. “They raped them alternately,” a relative of the victims told Radio Dabanga.

This morning, militiamen intercepted a young woman (18) as she collected straw near Hillet Ahmed. They raped her alternately, her brother reported. She was in a coma when she was found, and taken to the hospital of Tabit for treatment.
