December 7 - 2014 EL GENEINA LOCALITY

Two men raped a woman farmer near the village of Um Tirab in El Geneina locality, West Darfur, this morning.

The woman (36) was tending her crops in the vicinity of Um Tirab village, 16 km west of El Geneina town, when two men in civilian attire, one of them holding a pistol, seized her, tied her by the legs, and alternately raped her.

Her brother told Radio Dabanga today (Sunday) that when his sister did not come home at the usual time, they went to search for her. “We found her in a bad physical and mental state on her farmland.”
