Militiamen in Shangil rape 4 displaced women

March 28 - 2011 Shangil Tobaya

A group of militiamen took turns in raping 4 women aged 21, 40, 49 and 50 near Shangil Tobaya last Thursday. The women were tied to a tree, severely beaten and after being raped by multiple men left lying on the side of the street in a critical condition.

The four women were from the village of Hashaba but were displaced to Camp Shangil Tobaya due to the fighting and later to Zamzam camp near El Fasher. They had gone to Hashaba and Shangil to retrieve their belongings but were taken by the militiamen near the gate of Shangil. Travelers on their way to El Fasher found the four women on the side of the road and took them to Elsauda hospital for treatment. Since they did not receive adequate care from the hospital they left yesterday to receive local treatment at the camp.
