WMU student who escaped Sudan trains at Fort Knox
Deng said he was about 7 years old the day in the late 1980s that his village, Guk, was raided by soldiers who looted and burned the villagers' mud and grass homes, Deng said. At the time, he said, he was about 30 minutes away, working in a cattle pen. When he learned of the attack, he joined other children -- mainly boys -- who were running away.
"The enemies were looking for us," Deng said of the fighters, whom he described as Muslims. "They come and kill you, they come and try to take (away your possessions). ... They deny what belongs to us. And they try to force us to accept what we don't want."
Is there doubt that they were Muslims?
