According to UN human rights expert Yakin Erturk,

“”Women are brutally gang raped, often in front of their families and communities,” she said in a statement. “In numerous cases, male relatives are forced at gunpoint to rape their own daughters, mothers or sisters.”

The statement continued: “Frequently women are shot or stabbed in their genital organs, after they are raped. Women who survived months of enslavement told me that their tormentors had forced them to eat excrement or the human flesh of murdered relatives.”

Saying the situation required immediate attention, Erturk said 4,500 cases of sexual violence had been counted so far this year. The actual number was probably much higher, she said.”
