The former oil sector employee and 15 other men, all relatives and friends, are sharing one of six tents in a camp set up by his extended family for the entire winter close to the border with Saudi Arabia."Four of the tents in the camp are for sleeping and two big ones are used as living rooms, one for men and the other for women," Shimmari said.The tent in which he and the others are sleeping spans 5 by 10 meters.
