Chad: No Protection from rape and violence for displaced women and girls in eastern Chad

, Index number: AFR 20/008/2007

Grave conflict-related violations and abuses of human rights and international humanitarian law continue in eastern Chad. Women and girls in the region continue to face rape and other sexual violence at the hands of armed groups. There is a lack of information about the true extent of gender-based violence in and outside IDP sites in eastern Chad. According to victims, local contacts and humanitarian agencies, harassment, intimidation and rape occur with complete impunity - no-one has been caught or punished. Thousands of Chadian displaced girls and women face daily danger from attacks: they need immediate and effective protection.
