Darfur Atrocities Through Children's Eyes
Ala, Age 13
Like many other children, Ala witnessed conflict between rebel groups and the Janjaweed. This drawing depicts a rebel soldier first shot in the arm, then executed by gunshots to the groin. Ali, a teacher in a refugee camp, said the rebels are killed this way to emasculate them. They [the Janjaweed] know what they are doing, he said. They are doing it with purpose.
