In Southern Sudan Women Are Held As Slaves In 'Rape Camps'
Brutal 21-month conflict in Southern Sudan has resulted ambush, rape and abduction by armed men of the women and girls living at the base camp. One woman was abducted by soldiers and taken to military camp tied up and raped repeatedly for two months. Another was kidnapped with her 15-year-old sister and raped every night for five nights. Some are held up indefinetely, and tied up with hundred others in secret rape camps. Plight of perhaps thousands of South Sudanese women and girls from just a single state by government soldiers, abducted and subjected to repeated brutal rape and slave-like working conditions remained hidden up til now. One woman who escaped told when one of the soldiers wanted to have sex he would come un tie us and take us away when they are done they will take us back and tie with the post.
