"These are rebels walking. They captured a person who was working in a field. He became part of the rebel army. The woman came out of her house they asked her some questions. I am the person with the tool digging in a field. This is when I was captured. I was fourteen. Now I am fifteen."

"This is the moment I was abducted. The commander is in the rear. I am next carrying a heavy load. While we were moving they captured a grown-up man. They tied his hands behind his back. We walked two days with the grown-up man. After two days they killed him because they said he was a rich person and they demanded money. The man said he didn't have any money so they cut him with a machete and pierced him with a bayonet"

"We were beginning to cross the road. I am carrying (third from left) a very heavy load on my head and pans and a bag on my back. It was very heavy. A car was coming. They hit it with an RPG. Next to the road was a homestead. Inside was a woman. They asked her a question and she answered arrogantly. A rebel had an axe but he did not kill her. A dove flew out of her house."

"These are people. I saw it. These are rebels and government soldiers. They are fighting. The big man is telling the rebels to run. I cannot be seen. I was carrying a lot of luggage. The commander is telling us to run. Whenever anyone would shoot I would fall down to the ground. I was scared."
