Chad: Eyewitness acounts of violence

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Chad, War & Conflict

This is an eyewitness account of violence in Chad [1]: ““For over 7 hours we heard that battle rage. We felt afraid, wondered which part of the body to try to get under a 24 x 20 inch table. Was it more important to save the head or the chest? The legs? Did I want a bullet in any part of my body at all? Then, a grenade was lobbed into our yard but didn't go off. The soldiers cordoned off the area. People were running in the street trying to get away from the fighting but seemed to get blocked between the 2 factions.”
