Five members of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) gang raped two young women in East Jebel Marra on Friday.

A relative of one of the victims told Radio Dabanga that five RSF militiamen intercepted the two women at 8am, after they had left the village of Tourada, 15km east of Fanga, to collect firewood.

“They raped the two alternately at gunpoint, and did not release them until noon,” he said.

The source complained about the widespread abuses, rapes, and robberies by RSF troops stationed in the area. He called upon the authorities and human rights organisations to “intervene as soon as possible, and stop the militia assaults on civilians”.
