Idriss, Zakaria Abbas.
[The flames are burning down houses].
Refugee Camp, Eastern Chad,
Pencil on graph paper.
Arabic text in the drawing translates to, "In the name of God the compassionate and the merciful. Full name: Zakaria Abbas Idriss. The flames are burning down houses."
Drawing of Janjaweed militia that came on horseback and started shooting any civilian in sight. They received backing from Sudan's military who used trucks mounted with machine guns to fire mortar rounds in the village and also used helicopters to bomb and destroy these villages. Darfuri civilians tried to defend themselves with spears but were no match to the efficient hardware being used by the military and the militia group.
