Sudan Crisis: Doctors Accuse Troops Of Rape After Treating Over 70 Cases Of Rape In Aftermath Of Attack On Protest

17 hours ago Ayonline

Doctors believe that paramilitaries carried out more than 70 rapes during an attack on a protest camp in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, a week ago.

More than 100 people were killed and as many as 700 injured in the attack last Monday on a sit-in and clashes afterwards, as paramilitaries from the Rapid Support Forces spread through the city to quell sporadic unrest.

Shocking details of rapes by the RSF have emerged in recent days despite restrictions on communications in Sudan, but the extent of the sexual violence has remained unknown. One doctor with access to data compiled by the central committee of doctors, a pro-reform group, said hospitals in Khartoum had recorded more than 70 cases of rape in the attack and its immediate aftermath.

A doctor at the Royal Care hospital said it had treated eight victims of rape five women and three men. At a second hospital in the south of Khartoum, a medical source said it had received two rape cases, including one who was attacked by four RSF paramilitaries.

Several witnesses have also described similar cases on social media. Many victims have not sought medical treatment, either because of fear of reprisals, insecurity in the city, or because care has been limited. Human rights activists and experts have described the reports of sexual violence as reliable.

The crisis in Sudan continued on Monday with the second day of a general strike aimed at relaunching an opposition movement battered by a brutal crackdown, and forcing the country’s military leaders to resign. Shops were closed and streets were empty throughout Khartoum and in the neighbouring city of Omdurman, though there was visibly more traffic in the streets than on Sunday, when the strike began.

Four protesters were killed in sporadic violence in the two cities over the weekend. A top US diplomat will head to the country this week to urge an end to the crackdown. Tibor Nagy, the US assistant secretary of state for African affairs, plans to meet both members of the military leadership and protest leaders in Khartoum.

The names of 100 people killed since Sudanese forces launched a deadly crackdown on a peaceful sit-in earlier this month have been released.

The casualty figures after the army’s 3 June assault on the Khartoum protest sit-in, as well as over subsequent days of violence, have been unclear. Early reports said more than 100 people were killed in the crackdown.

Doctors and activists aligned with Sudan’s opposition movement say they believe many more may have died, however, and they have accused the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) paramilitary group of dumping bodies into the Nile River.

On Wednesday, the Sudanese Doctors’ Syndicate published a list of 112 people that were killed in the week of violence, including 12 who have not been identified yet.

Among them were at least 12 children.

Most of the people on the list died from gunfire, but 15 people were stabbed to death, the syndicate said. Others on the list died from burns, crushed skulls or after being run over by pick-up trucks.
