They did not speak. I do not remember their faces … most of them were about the same age as me. I tried not to kill them … I turned and shot without looking. But if I hesitated, one of the soldiers would flick off the safety catch of his own rifle and point it at me. I killed ten, perhaps 11, over three days, I don’t know what they had done.’
