Drawing by a child

Drawing by Abd al-Rahman, Age 13

The drawings by children and young people from the refugee camps collected by Human Rights Watch researchers are clear and disturbing proof of the brutal experiences to which they have been subjected. The 13-year-old Abd al-Rahman describes his picture: "I am herding the sheep in Wadi. Suddenly I see the Janjaweed militia coming - they are approaching fast on horses and camels and have Kalashnikovs. They are shooting and shouting 'Kill the slaves, kill the blacks.' They killed many men. They chased the children and took some of them away. We never saw them again. Then the planes came and bombarded our village."
