Boynuyogun, Turkey | March 18, 2012

Yemeni Nobel Peace Laureate Tawakul Karman visited the Boynuyogun refugee camp in Turkey on March 18, 2012. Refugees draped a Syrian flag around Karman's shoulders as she walked through the camp hugging and kissing women and children. "We also had a tent town like you have when we were protesting against Saleh in Yemen and we finally got what we wanted. We need a revolution for Syria and we will do it. Don’t worry, you will be back. You have to stand against Assad's regime to win your freedom. Muslims, Christians, you will reach your own freedom. Hey Assad! You are a dictator and we just want freedom and humanity" she said.

Tawakul Karman was an influential figure in the early days of the Yemen’s uprising against Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh last year, and was briefly imprisoned for her involvement in the protests.

Intisar Mohammad Camp Security (16-24)

20 Feb 2012

2011 meant big changes for Libya. After forty years in power, former dictator Muammar Gaddafi was ousted from power. But it took an ugly war, and Libyans are now facing the challenge of rebuilding and unifying their country. Among those suffering the consequences are the population of Tawergha, a coastal city of 30,000 inhabitants. During the war, many Tawerghans fought alongside Gaddafi’s forces. Many men were part of laying siege on the neighbouring Misrata, a city that suffered heavily during the months of fighting. When the war was nearing its end, Tawergha was captured by rebel groups from Misrata, who expelled the population and destroyed the houses. The inhabitants were forced to flee; today, many men are imprisoned while women, children and others are dispersed in refugee camps across the country. What will happen to them? The Tawerghans want to return to their homes, but the rebels guarding the city say that they can never come back.
