In East Jebel Marra on Saturday, three militiamen raped a woman who is five months pregnant.

The men, riding on camels and wearing scarves covering their faces, ambushed the woman (27) as she tended her farm in the area of Ashara Valley, west of Khazan Tunjur.

“The Janjaweeed seized her at gunpoint, and raped her alternately. After she was found, we brought her home, as there is no health care available in the area. We fear that she may lose her baby,” a relative of the victim told Radio Dabanga this (Sunday) morning.

She added that the victim has not uttered a word since the incident.
