Two women were gang-raped in separate incidents in Tawila locality, North Darfur, today.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, a relative of one of the victims said that a group of militiamen riding camels intercepted a young woman (18) this morning as she was on her way from Hillet Abakar, 12 kilometres north of Tabit, to the water well in the area.

“They seized her at gunpoint and raped her alternately,” he said. “She was taken home bleeding and mentally traumatised.”

A villager in the area of Kenjara Um Burma, 15 kilometres east of Tawila town, reported that three members of a government militia attacked a woman who was working on her farm, and raped her alternately.

Both incidents were reported to the police.
