A member of the paramilitary Border Guards raped an 8-year-old girl near Nierteti in Central Darfur on Thursday.

The militiaman seized and raped the child when she was grazing cows in the area of Khor Ramla, 7 km west of Nierteti, Adam Mohamed Yousef told Radio Dabanga.

A local search posse managed to capture the offender, and handed him to the Nierteti Police Department.

The victim was transferred to Nierteti Hospital.
