Iraq Through the Fall

Two Iraqi women mourn in the wash room of the a Shi'ite mosque's funerarium the death of a young girl killed during coalition bombings over Baghdad. The Koranic verse written on the wall reads: ñTell them (God speaking to prophet Mohammad) that the death you are trying to escape will always catch up with you. You will then return to God -the one who knows about the unknown, about the past and about what is happening. He will ask you about your past life and all your acts." March 29.
