A wounded soldier hangs on to a pole to assist in his rescue while being carried to a waiting plane. He was one of five soldiers who waited on the runway for five days with gunshot wounds hoping a plane would land. In the town of Jiech, the northern government of Sudan allows no flights, and planes are routinely shot down in this corridor. Rebels fight MIGS and helicopter gun ships with tractors and Kalashnikovs.
