Chad: Female Refugees the Victims

From the Guardian:
Women and girls who fled Sudan's Darfur conflict for refugee camps in Chad continue to face "high levels" of rape and other violence, according to Amnesty International. The group says in a report that the deployment of UN peacekeepers in Chad has failed to stop female refugees being attacked in and around the dozen camps dotted along the border. "The rape that countless women and girls experienced in Darfur continues in eastern Chad," said the report. "These women fled Darfur hoping that the international community would offer them safety and protection. "
