Idriss, Hillal Altoum.
[Shooting elderly women in Darfur].
Refugee camp, Eastern Chad,
Wax crayons on drawing paper.
On the back of the drawing is Arabic text that translates to "Name: Hillal Altoum Idriss. I was 5 yrs old when I left Sudan. Now, I'm in Chad and I'm 10 yrs old in the city of Kubar Nezka."
This picture was drawn in a refugee camp in Chad by a 10 year old Darfuri boy who recalls his village being attacked. When the Janjaweed militia group and Sudan's military attacked villages in Darfur, they shot anybody in sight including elderly women and children. The attacks were intense, and the government used helicopter gunships to bomb and burn villages. Armed Janjaweed militia came on camels and reinforced the government ground troops that were using armored tanks and trucks to attack villagers.
