Intersex person stripped naked and beaten for hours in broad daylight by ‘senseless’ mob

A violent mob sexually assaulted, beat and humiliated an intersex person for several hours all while filming it in Yaoundé, Cameroon.

In the capital city, Sara (not her real name) was hospitalised after suffering multiple hematomas across her body. Her injuries are so severe, doctors say, she must be monitored for 15 to 18 days.

According to the Human Rights Watch, the horrifying attack that has shuddered fear throughout the country took place on Monday (15 November.

Seemingly capturing the impunity of her attackers, the group filmed themselves setting upon Sara for several hours in the Messassi district. Two of the videos went viral on social media, the organisation added.

The startling footage shows Sara, a 27-year-old waitress, being thrashed with twigs, sexually assaulted and dragged outside in broad daylight only for the beatings to continue.

She had met her assailants in a bar. After refusing their advances, the men launched their attack, TV5Monde reported.

City police arrested a man in connection to the incident but released him only 48 hours later.
