Sudan denies mass military rapes in Darfur

UN seeks probe into alleged sexual assault of hundreds by troops apparently while searching for missing colleague.

The Sudanese government has dismissed allegations its soldiers raped about 200 women and girls in the troubled province of Darfur in Sudan.

The UN Security Council has called for a thorough investigation into the claims that soldiers attacked women on two separate occasions in the village of Thabet, apparently as they searched for a missing soldier.
