Woman injured in South Darfur rape attempt
A displaced woman from camp Hashaba in Mershing locality in South Darfur was severely injured when gunmen attempted to rape her on Sunday.
A sheikh told Radio Dabanga that gunmen on camels attacked and attempted to rape three women working on farms two kilometres south of the camp.
The women resisted which prompted one of the gunmen to stab one of them in her thigh and stomach.
The screams of women calling for help forced the gunmen to flee.
The sheikh said the stabbed woman was seriously injured and taken to Nyala Hospital.
He appealed to the commissioner of the locality to secure the farms of the displaced.
