Two young women were raped on their farmland in East Jebel Marra on Tuesday.

A relative of the victims informed Radio Dabanga that the assault occurred west of Sharafa village, where the two women, aged 21 and 18, were tending their crops.

“Three militiamen riding on camels entered the farmland at noon, during fasting time,” she said, “and raped them alternately for hours.”

She added that the victims are being treated at home with traditional medicines.
