Abstract

This drawing by an 8 year old Darfuri boy depicts the Sudan military and a government sponsored militia group shooting and killing children in a Darfuri village. Houses in the villages are seen being burnt down after being shelled by helicopter gunships and tanks. Trucks mounted with guns that fire mortar rounds were also used to pound villages and the militia men came on horse and camel backs to finish off whoever tried to escape from the villages.
