Sudan Border War

Marco Gualazzini

2013 - Ongoing

For over two years Sudan’s government has waged a bombing campaign against civilian it accuses of supporting Nuban rebels. Cheap shrapnel bombs are dropped out of Antontov cargo plans nearly every day. The campaign has terrorized the people of the Nuba mountains, forcing many to flee, and making it difficult for others to plant and tend their farms. There are no reliable data on the number of people who’ve lost limbs or been disabled since the war started in the Nuba Mountains in June of 2011. Some people are hit by shrapnel, others accidentally detonate unexploded rockets and bombs hidden just beneath the ground.
