A woman and a girl (14) were gang-raped in East Jebel Marra on Tuesday afternoon.

A relative of the victims told Radio Dabanga that a group of gunmen riding on camels ambushed the two women, while they were collecting straw in the area of Sharafa.

“They seized them, and raped them alternately for four consecutive hours,” she said.

“When the two had not returned to Sharafa village by sunset, a team was formed to search for them. They found the victims, in a very bad mental and physical condition, in one of the valleys nearby.”
