Two girls were raped near Jumeizaya in Tawila locality, North Darfur, on Monday afternoon, the father of one of the victims reported.

Two herders on camels intercepted his 11-year-old daughter and her 12-year-old companion on their way back from collecting hay near Jumeizaya, west of Tabit.

“The attackers tied up my daughter and her friend and raped them,” the father said. “Other villagers and I went to search for them and found them tied up, in a very bad health condition.”

The group carried the victims to the station of the Sudanese military intelligence in the area of Tabit. The personnel told the father to move the girls to El Fasher, where they were taken to the Saudi Hospital the same day.
