Darfour: Le génocide se poursuit.

Marian tells me her harrowing story ‘We knew lots of Arabs, and we thought we were the same: one people. Then suddenly they started killing us. They came into our village and attacked us. I was hit during the Government bombing raid. I still have shrapnel embedded in my head. Then men on horseback came in and stabbed those who were still alive. They took the men and killed them. My husband disappeared – I don’t know what happened to him. They took all the boys from their parents and murdered them. My baby boy was thrown on the fire in front of me. My daughter was older. They thought she was a boy so they slaughtered her too – they snapped her neck like a chicken. Some of the children they threw down a well.’

Marian escaped and hid in the bush for three months, surviving on leaves. She couldn’t get to any of the camps for displaced people: the militia chased them away so they couldn’t report what had happened. ‘I saved two orphans. I hid them in my clothes – I still have them with me today.’ She gestures at the child wriggling in her lap, a brief smile flickering across her face.
