A 10-year-old girl succumbed to her injuries after she was gang-raped, together with her mother, east of Gireida in South Darfur on Sunday.

“Four militiamen wearing military uniforms and riding horses attacked the girl and her mother while they tended their farm in Wadi Tawil, seven kilometres east of Gireida,” a villager reported to Radio Dabanga. “They raped them alternately.”

He said that the driver of a vehicle coming from Ed Daein, capital of East Darfur, saw the mother and her child lying on the ground.

“He took them to Gireida Hospital, where the girl died. The mother is still in the hospital, in a state of shock.”
