The writer of this story met the soldiers and demanded what lead to the shooting but they said nothing happened.
When I demanded to speak with their commander, they said, “You cannot speak with anyone”.
I told them that I was going to write what I saw, one of the soldiers said: “Go and write anything you want”.
