A group of militiamen raped three young women in the area west of Sirba camp for the displaced in West Darfur on Tuesday.

“Five militiamen, wearing military uniforms, ambushed two women and a girl aged 14, when they were returning to the camp with firewood,” the coordinator of the Sirba camps reported to Radio Dabanga.

“The men raped the women alternately at gunpoint,” he said. “The girl had to be taken to the hospital as she was found in a critical condition after been raped for hours.”
