“We were forced to kill”

By Ferso Dohou Pascal and Manuel Moreno

N’DJAMENA, Chad, 30 June 2014 – As he sits on a tree trunk, staring at the ground, Ibrahim* recalls how a rebel group in northern Chad recruited him three years ago. His voice is monotone, as if his experience had happened to someone else, not to him.

At age 15, he was coerced, drugged and forced to kill.

“When the rebel group arrived, they found our school,” he says. “The rebels intimidated us. They beat up us and told us to join them. They said that our families would be protected.”

Les enfants non accompagnés de la RCA dans l'incertitude

Report
IRIN

SARH, 15 juin 2014 (IRIN) - La violence en République centrafricaine (RCA) a forcé 97 000 civils à se réfugier au Tchad voisin. Parmi eux, environ 1 200 sont des enfants non accompagnés ou séparés qui souhaitent maintenant retrouver leur famille et retourner à l'école et retrouver la sécurité ou, du moins, un semblant de normalité.

« Ce que je souhaite le plus au monde, c'est de retrouver mon père », a dit Lamine, 12 ans. « J'ignore s'il est en vie ou non. Si je savais qu'il était mort, je pourrais au moins faire mon deuil. »
