Militiamen gang raped a 17 year-old woman near Katur village in Tawila locality, traditionally belonging to East Jebel Marra, today.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, a cousin of the victim reported that two militiamen wearing military uniforms and riding on camels attacked the woman, when she was collecting firewood north of the village at 2pm this (Monday) afternoon.

“They alternately raped her until about 5pm. When she did not return home, we formed a rescue team, who found her, heavily bleeding, in one of the creeks.

“She was taken home in a very bad mental and physical state, to be treated with traditional medicines,” she said, explaining that there are no medical doctors or health facilities in the area.
