Hell is a blind man in a lawless land waiting for his attackers to return.
Today Goz Beida is quiet. Peaceful. I asked Abdullah if he feels safe now. He said, " I feel safe only because Minurcat is here". He was referring to the United Nations peacekeeping force which has a base nearby. The soldiers at this base are Irish, Russian and Finnish. Abdullah added, "if Minurcat leaves they must take me with them. The Janjaweed will return and they will kill me."
He doesn't know yet that Chadian President Deby has decided to oust the international peacekeepers before the end of April.
