In a separate incident, two displaced women were allegedly gang raped by militiamen near to Kass in South Darfur.
A sheikh told Radio Dabanga that militiamen riding camels and horses attacked Maguba village, opening fire on the displaced. “A young woman of 16 was raped, while Adam Yahya, Jabro Abkar Saleh, and Habib Abdullah Musa were injured. Citizens Ibrahim Musa and Yahya Abdul Molar are both missing since the attack.”
He added that the militiamen looted the property and luggage of the displaced before making off with several head of cattle.
“The displaced were able to apprehend one of the perpetrators and handed him over to the police,” the sheikh concluded.
In the area of Margoum, west of Kass in South Darfur, militiamen allegedly accosted and repeatedly raped two women who were tending a farm.
A relative of one of the victims told Radio Dabanga the attack occurred on Tuesday. The men then took turns raping the women all day and only released them on Wednesday.
