Abstract

Drawing done on 26th June 2007 by a 13 year old Darfuri boy in a Chadian refugee camp. He depicts how his village in Darfur was attacked by the Janjaweed militia group four years before the date of the drawing. He shows how houses were burned down, how the government attacked villages using machine guns mounted on trucks and how the Janjaweed on camel backs attacked the villages. Horses were also used to transport the militia group to kill whoever tried to escape while government helicopters and tanks were used to bomb villages and to flatten them.
