Four gunmen raped two displaced girls in Gireida locality in South Darfur on Wednesday afternoon.

A resident of the Donki Idrisa camp for the displaced informed Radio Dabanga that four gunmen ambushed the 15 and 17-year-old girls as they were on their way to collect firewood in Rahad Abu Idrisa, one kilometre from the camp.

“The gunmen were returning from the market of El Taga, when they intercepted the girls, and raped them alternately,” he said.

“Passers-by who found them lying on the ground took them to Gireida hospital.”
