Darfur Sexual Abuse Unit Established

Darfur peacekeeping mission UNAMID plans to create a unit which will be “responsible for monitoring and reporting on investigations of crimes committed against women and children”.

UNAMID hopes that the unit will aid in “bringing justice to the victims”.

Rape has been used as a weapon of war in Darfur – physically and emotionally scarring countless innocent females. Some cases are reported. However, many are not.
