Zum Kontrast mit dem Historienbild unten hier drei alltägliche Bilder aus dem Irak von Anfang Januar.
Aus dem immer lehrreichen Blog „Healing Iraq“:
A view of the dozens of corpses lying in the streets of Baghdad, often for weeks. These scenes of Iraq’s civil war have become such a daily part of people’s lives so much that they don’t bother to remove the bodies. Those were taken in Adhamiya a month ago and the victims were judged as „strangers“ or „spies“ before they were shot and thrown with the garbage in the street. People in the neighbourhood just covered them with blankets and moved on. Those bodies are rarely counted in the daily death toll, and when they are counted they’re just „unknown corpses.“
