Kabkabiya (25 Dec .) - A group of women were raped by an armed group on Saturday near an internally displaced persons camp in Kabkabiya locality, North Darfur.

Speaking to Radio Dabanga, one of the victims said that eight gunmen on horses intercepted the six women traveling on donkeys to collect firewood from an area east of Kabkabiya.

They were arrested, beaten and raped, and released today. But the victim said four of the other women refused to report the incident to the United Nations Mission in Darfur forces, as they hadn’t taken any action on similar events that had happened before to her peers.
