Planes are shot down. Large, fiery explosions are shown. Masked soldiers shoot at a group of men and women (many of the soldiers are later killed in an explosion).

Dead bodies are frequently shown strewn on the ground. Torture methods are discussed and a character is shown with signs of enduring physical abuse. A character attacks another by pushing, hitting and choking, until he is hit over the head with a large object.
