Thanks to Elliot Green for sending this one in.
Jawahir, a 17-year-old Salamat girl, said that three men, wearing military uniforms and carrying guns, had taken turns raping her during 11 hours of captivity. One held her arms, another her legs, while the third raped her.
“We’re going to finish off the Salamat this year,” she quoted one of the attackers as telling her. It has been three months since then, and Jawahir said she still has health problems related to the attack.
“My fiancé knows the situation,” she said. “He’s a long way away, so we don’t know if he’ll accept me or not.”
I asked Jawahir how she found the courage to speak about such a taboo subject.
“This is something that happened,” she said. “So people should know. I want the world to know.”
