Two militiamen raped a 17-year-old woman west of Tabit in North Darfur on Thursday morning.

“Two militia members on motorcycles intercepted the woman as she was returning from the well of Jabayeen, 15 kilometres west of Tabit,” a relative of the victim reported to Radio Dabanga. “They seized her at gunpoint and repeatedly raped her.”

She said that the woman was found later, lying on the ground, by people visiting the well.
