A young mother of a one-year-old girl was raped in Wadi Dari near Nierteti in Central Darfur on Wednesday.

The father of the victim told Radio Dabanga that his daughter (18) was assaulted at about 9 am, when she was on her way, with her baby on her back, to her farmland in Dari Valley.

“They took her at gunpoint to the bottom of the valley, where they threw her daughter into the bushes. They then raped her alternately,” he said.

He expressed his abhorrence, not only about the assault of his daughter, but also about the fact that the soldiers raped her during fasting time.

Passers-by found her in a very bad physical and mental condition. She was taken to Nierteti Hospital for treatment.
