Witness interview

Witnesses interviewed: 8 (N°712, 713, 714, 715, 716, 717, 718, 719). Nadia M (N°715): " The day of the execution I saw pass the column. I was afraid and I quickly went home where I put my head under a pillow. It was the summer and that happened during an entire day at the harvest time. That’s why many small farmers were in the fields; some of them went to the execution site after the mass shooting to take clothes."
