23 may 2010 - Western Equatoria State, South Sudan - Arrow Boys patrolling in Zangia, a village that was recently attacked by the LRA. Arrow boys groups are formed by local men and boys to defend their communities against LRA attacks with traditional weapons such as bows, arrows, spears and clubs, treated with poisonous and localy made guns. Western Equatoria state has been rocked by LRA activities since 2006. Thousands of people have been forced from their homes as brutal attacks continue against the civilian population in the region and neighboring DRC and CAR. Photo credit: Benedicte Desrus
