A sketch in the sand illustrates a 2003 assault on Furawiya village in Darfur in western Sudan. The diagram was drawn four years later in a refugee camp in neighboring Chad by Asdallah Asdel Khaled, a survivor of the attack. He had witnessed the total destruction of his village and atrocities committed against its inhabitants. Between 2003 and 2007, over 200,000 people were killed and millions displaced by ethnic conflict in Darfur, with large numbers fleeing to Chad.
