But even degree Bashir could defend against conflicts intrude consuming his homeland. Janjaweed Arab militias attacked brutally Zaghawa, typically with the support of the Sudanese army. Then, in early 2004, the Janjaweed attacked Bashir village and surrounding areas, raping forty to two schoolgirls and their teachers. Bashir, who treated the traumatized victims, some as young as eight years, could no longer stay silent. But breaking her silence ignited a horrifying turn.
