DOZENS of kids have been killed and sexually abused by brutal militia groups in Sudan, with the smell of bodies reportedly filling schools.
At least 19 children are among those confirmed to have been killed amid unrest that has engulfed the country in recent weeks.
Doctors now believe paramilitaries also carried out more than 70 rapes during an attack on a protest camp in Khartoum last week.
Violence erupted in April following the removal from office of Omar al-Bashir, the country’s strongman president of 30 years.
The military then launched a brutal crackdown on protesters staging sit-ins and demanding a transition to full civilian rule.
Reports have since emerged of repeated atrocities being committed by the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), a notoriously brutal militia with its roots in the Darfur conflict, which broke out in western Sudan in 2003.
Successful attempts by the army to cut off the internet in certain areas have made communication within the country intermittent.
