Displaced girl gang-raped in Central Darfur

Gunmen gang raped a girl from the Hassahissa camp for the displaced in Zalingei locality, Central Darfur, resulting in her hospitalization.

Six militia fighters on four camels and two horses on Sunday attacked a girl in Wadi Waranga, north of the Hassahissa camp, the coordinator of the Central Darfur camps told Radio Dabanga.

“She was on her way back to the camp after collecting firewood. The gunmen beat and whipped her before they repeatedly raped her.”

The girl was transferred to Zalingei hospital in a bad physical and psychological condition. “She does not speak at all, and is trembling continuously.”

The Central Darfur camps coordinator said that the abuses by “government-backed militiamen” against citizens and displaced people are on the rise. “This should be stopped immediately.”
