  • In Malakal Protection Of Civilians, young boys have found a way to entertain themselves by utilizing the junkyard as an obstacle course. The sun is high up, the metal is hot, boys jump from one tire to another, climb over old UN land cruisers then, as agile grasshoppers, they leap from one car's roof to another. Looking at them, I could feel the adrenaline in my veins, the fresh breeze on my face but didn't want feel my feet touching the hot root of the beat-up SUVs.
