Guantanamo Bay, Khadr day 4: trial begins




Omar Khadr's trial began today, with military jury present. However, for the first time since covering these commissions I was not allowed to draw the jury in any way- not even an outline. So you see large numbers representing them. At the end of the day one of the attorneys collapsed. We await word on his condition, though he was responsive. Thoughts to the positive.

Hello,
I am glad I was able to find out who is the talented individual behind these striking and expressive court drawings. My partner and I (both trained artists) find them very impressive, especially given that you must have to sketch quickly and from moving models.
