Rape cases soar in Somali camps

It is estimated 1,700 women were raped in camps for displaced people in the capital, Mogadishu.

    There has been a rise in incidents of rape and sexual abuse of women and young girls in Somalia.

    Most of the assaults go unreported because victims fear stigma and reprisals.

    The United Nations recorded 1,700 rapes in 500 camps for displaced people in the capital Mogadishu.
