The UN has accused South Sudan's army of raping and then burning girls alive inside their homes during its recent campaign, a report by its mission in the country said.

By Fahima Hashim, the Director of Salmmah Women's Resource Centre, on the one-year anniversary of the organisations's closure by the Sudanese government.

Today marks one year since the closure of Salmmah Women's Resource Centre by the government of Sudan (on the 24th June 2014).

In February this year, Sudan made amendments to its controversial Shari’a-based penal code which included changes to the law pertaining to the crime of rape.

Cairo (Reuters) - Sudan confiscated issues of 10 major newspapers on Sunday, in response to reports they carried on sexual assaults on children in Sudan, newspaper editors and a security source said.

The newspapers had published a story on Sunday based on a speech by an activist who said rape and sexual harassment were common on vehicles taking children to school.

Rashida Manjoo, United Nations Special Rapporteur on violence against women, conducted an official visit to Sudan, invited by the Government, to analyse the  causes and consequences of VAW across the Country. She observed that violence against women is an issue of concern in Sudan despite the existence of programme, policies and laws. Reports and interviews refer to the existence of violence in the family and the community, including against women and girl children, whether physical, psychological, sexual or economic.
