|Troops attacked the hamlet with artillery and fire from two helicopters. The villagers and other people displaced by the operation attempted to cross the Sumpul river to take refuge in Honduras. Honduran troops deployed on the opposite bank of the river barred their way. They were then killed by Salvadorian troops who fired on them in cold blood.|
|Our first meeting with members of the CCR|
This year will be very different. We spent eight days in the community last time and we lived with the families. It was a great experience and we learned so much. We decided not to stay this time so that we can expose the group to more people in different communities throughout the country.
|The Sumpul - we liked to sit in the river and enjoy the lovely cool water|
