A group of militiamen gang-raped an 18-year-old resident of Kassab camp for the displaced in Kutum, North Darfur, on Friday.

“She was collecting straw with a number of other displaced women north of Kassab camp, when militiamen attacked them,” a friend reported to Radio Dabanga.

“They picked her from the group, and raped her alternately for five continuous hours.”

The source added that the woman was taken to Kassab hospital “heavily bleeding and in a state of shock”.
