In pictures: Sudan's slave voices

Marko Akot Deng Akot: "In 1987, the Arab militia came and attacked our village and took me.

My niece was also abducted but she was taken by a different man and I have not seen her since.

I had to look after the cattle, goats and sheep. I was only given left-overs to eat and sometimes nothing at all. One day, a cow went missing and I was beaten so badly that my right arm and leg are paralysed.

Now I want to go to school. As I am disabled, education is the only way I can get on."
