'I'm looking at a child being brought out of the rubble,
in fact two children I can now see, being carried
towards me by civil defense workers.I guess they
may be eight or nine years old, two little boys,
they're right beside me now, but they're dead,
they're dead and they're being taken to ambulances
which are further up the road.As they move away I'm
just coming back around now to the building itself,
which was a large apartment building which has just
collapsed and we were told there was a large number
of people inside there, mostly women and children.
What opportunities did people have to get out?
Well look it's as simple as this, you tell people to
move south, when they move south they get bombed
or caught up in cross fire its an appalling choice. For
people to have to make, this is a body of a 15 year
old boy passing near me now.This is the body of a
child, I guess it's a seven years old boy.These people
have no money to pay to get out, these are poor people
they can not afford to move out of their villages.'
