A woman has reportedly been killed and her daughter raped, allegedly by a member of the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) stationed in Blue Nile state.

An activist from El Kurmuk locality told Radio Dabanga that the incident occurred “about six days ago”.

He reports that the woman and her daughter were tilling their farmland in the Shimi area, north of El Kurmuk.

“One of the SAF personnel stationed at Camp Birka accosted the women and began to rape the daughter. Her mother defended her, hitting the soldier with a farming tool, whereupon he hit her with a rifle butt, killing her outright.”

The daughter also suffered a broken leg.
