New report details how Christian women raped and killed in Sudan violence

The violence in Sudan against Christians is finally making headlines, but a new article by Christian Today detail how women, several were elderly, fled from attacks only to be raped and killed at or near a church.

The women sought refuge at the St Andrew’s Episcopal Church compound, when rebels discovered them, raping several of them before shooting them at close range.

“The women were from different parishes in the diocese and had converged in the church compound when they were killed,” the Anglican Bishop of Bor, Ruben Akurdit Ngong, told World Watch Monitor by telephone from Bor. “This is very painful. They destroyed most of the churches in the diocese, but God is with us.”

The women were identified as Dorcas Abuol Bouny and Akut Mayem Yar, both 72, Tabitha Akuang, 60, and Mary Alek Akech and Martha Agok Mabior, both 70. They worked as pastors in the church.

A prominent lay leader, Agel Mabior, 72, was also killed.

“They were all clergy. They all worked at the church. They did different jobs, [including] Bible reading,” South Sudanese Anglican Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul told local reporters.

The country is in turmoil with a tribe from Nuer, nicknamed the ‘White Army,’ are to blame for the attack according to sources.

“They were all clergy. They all worked at the church. They did different jobs, [including] Bible reading,” South Sudanese Anglican Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul told local reporters.
