The assessments begin

IRIN published what many of us fear.

A friend of mine sent me this email:

i met somebody came from SIRBA and he reported that
people were in the village when the combination of troops arrived GOS and Janjweed
they were more than 30 vehicles land curser and approximately 100 horse and 50 camels
and they were divided in three coulms which were heading in different direction, they were ululating and shooting
every body we come to kill the GOS opposition and kill black slaves,they went to OMDA house where his is sick
and 16 men from the village visited him they killed all the men and OMDA and they move forward and come to anther
houses and run after those who trying to flee .
and he keep telling me he said i was running away next to IMMAM who was very old, he was shot four time in the
back and in leg.then burned the village only few houses remained intact and the move forward toABUSROUG and SILEA
eye witness report

Many thought, including I, that the events of 2003 and 2004 were over. We were wrong.
