Torture in Rhodesia

Torture in Rhodesia

Taken on 1977-06-28

Villagers will not give up guerrillas to the Rhodesian scouts. So the scouts resort to torture. They force them to line up in pushup stance and hold the position. Scouts threaten those who break position with punishment. Those who fall are taken behind a house and knocked out; a scout then fires a shot in the air so that the remaining captives assume death. The last man, fearful for his life and exhausted, divulges information to the scouts. 1978 Pulitzer Prize, Feature Photography, J. Ross Baug
