YUSUF DE SUDÁN, DETENIDO EN MALTA, 16 AÑOS
«Cuando salí de Darfur, alrededor de las 10 de la mañana, violaron a mis hermanas frente a mí. En ese momento, tenía 16 años. Pero nunca olvidaré esto. Nunca lo olvidaré. Mataron a mi padre y a mis hermanos delante de mí.”
Todo el pueblo de Yusuf huyó después de ser atacado. “La gente muerta está muerta. Los enterramos. Y todos nos fuimos.”
“Estábamos perdidos. Seis días en el mar. El agua se había terminado, el combustible también y no quedaba comida. Y sólo oramos. No teníamos luz ni gasolina. Nada.’

Yusuf fled his village because of the conflict in Darfur. ‘The war is compelling us to leave the country, to leave the people who we never wish to leave in our whole lives. And we have already faced a lot of things, so cruel, so bad things,’ Yusuf said.
‘When I left Darfur… in front of me, around 10 o’clock in the morning, they raped my sisters. At that time, I was 16 years. But I will never forget this. I will never forget it. They killed my father and two brothers in front of me.’
Yusuf’s whole village fled after it was attacked. ‘The people who are dead, are dead. We buried them. And all of us left.
Nobody of the village who was still alive stayed in that place anymore,’ he said.
Yusuf left with his mother and two sisters. The village was close to the border, so it didn’t take long to cross into Chad. He stayed in a refugee camp for 11 days. But ‘the camp was not safe. Some people were coming from outside trying to enter the camp and they attack them, they shooting, they come creeping at night, militias and kidnapping the people.’ The guides who brought the villagers to the camp insisted they would take care of the mothers, but that the young boys were not safe and that they should leave.
‘So we left. We came to Libya. From Libya, we came here [to Malta].’
The boys from Yusuf’s village did not leave the refugee camp all together. Yusuf left with four other boys. The group travelled by car for a while before separating. Yusuf then found a Libyan animal trader who agreed to take Yusuf to Libya if he cared for the sheep on the way. The man took Yusuf to Tripoli. The whole trip lasted 14 days.
