The authorities in Sudan have been urged to grant immediate access to the African Union-UN Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) to verify allegations of mass rapes in a village in the northern part of the Sudanese region.

UNAMID was deployed in July 2007 to protect civilians and support the peace process to resolve the conflict in Darfur.
