Villagers have been forced to take shelter in whatever crude dwellings they can find in the ruins of other villages or here in the remnants of an old Soviet smelting plant.

Recent violence is attributed to a group of foreign fighters referred to by locals as as the “Tangrings”. As you can see these men are heavily armed, and on a mission, a mission that could prove fatal to anyone who stands in their way.

With no political will or international pressure, there’s very little hope for these refugees.

Around me, a woman begging for news of her husband, who was kidnapped by insurgents, either forced to join their militia or . . . .

A child’s question: where are my mother and father. there’s very little hope for these refugees, refugees who wonder, who if anyone can help them.
