Three militiamen raped a married woman near Katur in Tawila locality, North Darfur, on Tuesday.

A woman from the village estimated that the victim is about 19 years old. She told Radio Dabanga that the militiamen, riding camels, found the woman out in the open where she was collecting straw and firewood.

“They threatened and beat her before they raped her.” People discovered the victim at the location of the incident later that day.

Back in Katur she now receives traditional treatment, the woman said, as there is no hospital or health centre in the area.
