Militiamen raped two young women who were returning from farmlands in Kereinik locality, West Darfur, on Thursday evening.
The coordinator of Murnei camp reported to Radio Dabanga that six militia members attacked the women, 20 and 25 years old, in Wadi Krokola at 6 pm. The valley lies 2 km south of the camp.
The victims were on their way back from the farmlands to Murnei at the time of the incident. “They were beaten and then raped for four continuous hours, until 10 pm,” the coordinator explained.
“We have informed the police and the UN-AU mission in Darfur (Unamid) about the incident. The victims were transferred to the hospital in Murnei. They are currently in a poor physical and mental condition.”
