Photos from Darfur: Handing over ceremony of the UN Light Support Package to the AU

More great photos and captions at Soldier of Africa by SA Military Observer Werner K, currently on active service in El Fashier, N Darfur, W Sudan.

Handing over ceremony of the UN Light Support Package to the AU

Photo: A photographer grabs a photo at the handing over ceremony of the UN Light Support Package to the AU earlier today [in Darfur, W Sudan]. This package includes night sight equipment, GPS's, sleeping bags and so forth. AMIS already has many of these items, but thus far I have had the impression that few know how to use equipment like GPS's. I hope training in the use of the new equipment is part of the package or it will mean nothing for the people of Darfur. (Photo and caption by Werner K, Soldier of Africa Jan 2007)
