Human rights activist tells Stetson audience about escaping death in Sudan
While helping another woman move to a neighboring house in Darfur, human rights activist Niemat Ahmadi was attacked by a masked man.
He wrapped a scarf around her neck. She struggled and screamed for help as nearby military stood by and watched.
Standing in front of a group of Stetson University students, teachers and community leaders, Ahmadi described Monday night what she calls the first of two assassination attempts against her life before fleeing Darfur, a region of Sudan that has dealt with unrest since war started in 2003.
