In may 1991 I was in Kassala in Sudan near the border to Eritrea photographing refugees from Eritrea in The Wad Sharifey Camp. Soon after fighting broke out in Eritrea between Eritrean People’s Liberation Front and Ethiopian government soldiers. The dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam had fled Ethiopia and his regime had collapsed. Thousands of government soldiers fled over the border into the semi desert land between Tessenei and Kassala, dehydrated in the heat and with many wounded. Many died before help slowly started to arrive. Warning: strong images.
