An armed group attacked four displaced persons and raped two, from El-Amiriyah IDP camp, east of Kabkabiya in North Darfur. A relative of the victims told Radio Dabanga that four armed men attacked a group of four IDPs on Thursday August 23. Among the victims were an underaged girl and an elderly woman.
The victims were on their way back to the camp from the agricultural area of Haddour, south of Kabkabiya when they were attacked. The gunmen stopped the IDPs and first attacked the elderly woman and a man, beating them with rifles and whips and tied them to a tree nearby.
The gunmen took the young girl and a woman down to a valley nearby and raped them. Both the woman and the girl were released on Friday August 24.
The relative mentioned to Radio Dabanga that the incident was reported to UNAMID as well as the police. UNAMID stated that the victims will be treated for their injuries on Sunday August 26, as the hospital is closed until then.
