NGO Security Scenario #15
You are working as a security officer in Darfur. This is your first assignment in the region and you have a limited amount of field experience. You are meeting in a town with several other experienced security officers from different organizations when a siren starts to sound. You look up and see a large group of horsemen riding down the street. "Janjaweed," one of your colleagues says. Click the play button below to experience what you see and hear.
How do you determine the current level of risk? What questions do you ask your colleagues? What actions do you take? (If you're unfamiliar with the Janjaweed, click here for context.) Share your thoughts by clicking on COMMENTS below.
