    EXCLUSIVE - From Darfur to Khartoum: Inside the recruitment of Sudanese forced mercenaries

    EXCLUSIVE - From Darfur to Khartoum: Inside the recruitment of Sudanese forced mercenaries

    EXCLUSIVE: Darfur, a region cut off from the world. A volatile area that still bears the scars of genocide. Many are looking for a better future elsewhere. A quest that led them to battlefields in Libya. Some are tricked. Others are trapped. All are forced to kill.

    MORE:
    From Darfur to the capital Khartoum, we've uncovered ruthless recruiting networks and spoken to those who risked a terrifying escape to break free from a conflict that isn't theirs.
    Abdelrazak went to look for gold. But he was kidnapped and sold to Libyan militias who forced him to fight alongside Khalifa Haftar's troops as they tried to get hold of the capital Tripoli. He ended up taking part in massacres similar to those that decimated his family in the early 2000s.

    Ayman signed a contract for a security job in the United Arab Emirates. But he landed in the Libyan desert where he received three months of intense military training, ranging from using Kalashnikovs, digging trenches and drafting battle plans.

    When his fellow recruit Abuelmuali tried to get an explanation from the recruitment agency, one employee almost ran us over with his car as we were filming.

    Sudan’s Soldiers of Misfortune is a documentary from the multi-award winning series Off The Grid.

    *At 4’08 it should read, 'What happened here has been described as the first genocide of the century'.

    Fighting on Two Fronts | Coronavirus Editions - On The Map

    Fighting on Two Fronts | Coronavirus Editions - On The Map

    As much of the world has shut down to combat the coronavirus pandemic, we look at conflict zones... where people are now fighting on two fronts. We got rare access to Northern Syria, where millions are cramped in squalid camps... and where COVID-19 is just another catastrophe waiting to happen. In Yemen, the health system has collapsed after 5 years of war. Clean hands and drinkable water are a privilege, and wearing a mask is a luxury. In Libya, virus or no virus, the civil war continues. Warring parties now seem to be exploiting the pandemic itself. Fighting on Two Fronts is part of our Documentary Series: On The Map - Coronavirus Editions.
