Three militiamen gang-raped a schoolgirl (14) in Tawila locality, North Darfur, on Saturday.

A sheikh of the Naivasha camp for the displaced near Shangil Tobaya told Radio Dabanga that three militiamen riding camels intercepted the girl as she collected straw north of the camp.

“They raped her alternately for three hours.”

He said that the girl, bleeding and unconscious, was treated at the Unamid base of Shangil Tobaya. “She regained consciousness, but as a result of the shock she refuses to drink or eat.”
