Uganda, Karamoja, 1986
The Ugandan army was tracking down a group of marauders who had raided several villages, stealing cattle and massacring villagers. At dawn, the soldiers entered a town thought to be a refuge for the raiders. This boy was startled from sleep and, still wrapped in his blanket, was ordered outside while the soldiers searched his home.

كان الجيش الأوغندي يرصدُ مجموعةً من اللصوص الذين داهموا العديد من القرى فكانوا يسرقون الماشية ويُجهزون على سكان القرية. عند الفجر، دخل الجنود بلدةً اعتقدوا أنها ملجأً اللّصوص. استيقظ هذا الصبي من نومه مذعوراً وكان لا يزال ملفوفاً ببطانيته حين طُلب منه الخروج ريثما يفتش الجنود منزله.
