Tommy Trenchard

Conakry, Guinea

Amara Toure in his former home at the spot where he was hit by a stray bullet during unrest on 22 January 2007.

'On 22 January I was going to bathe when a bullet came through the roof and into my lower back. It lodged in my stomach. I had heard shooting in the area. My parents took me to a clinic but they said they couldn't help me. There was no law at that time. Soldiers were shooting inside Donka Hospital. I lay on the bed for 19 hours before they operated. I still feel the pain. Sometimes it's so bad I can't walk. And I still can't eat much.'
