Iraq War Grief Daily Witness Day 2


A woman injured at Bab al-Sheik market in central Baghdad, Iraq, lies at al-Kindi hospital Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2007. Two bombs were detonated five minutes apart Tuesday in a used motorcycle marketplace in central Baghdad, killing at least 15 people and wounding 74 others, police said. The first bomb was attached to a motorcycle in the market. As the curious gathered to look at the aftermath, a suicide car bomber drove into the crowd and blew up his vehicle.

From Sunshine's Blog yesterday:

"Many events happened this week , a relative of mine was murdered while he was driving his car in Mansoor a neighborhood in Baghdad, he is 25 years old , and has 6 months old baby , my grandparents couldn’t go to the funeral because the bridges are locked , and we couldn’t go to Baghdad because it is impossible ..
My other relatives’ story is very tragic , a lorry exploded in front of their house , the house completely damaged , their 13years old daughter died , the mother and father as well as one of their sons were very badly injured and they are in the emergency room , their other son is a live with simple injuries
What a tough situation when a brother bury his sister ?"
