Just Another Day

Child being carried into al-kindi hospital after bombingThis photograph shows a boy who was injured in today's bombing of a market in Sadr city being carried in the al-Kindi hospital by his father. The man runnning behind them is his grandfather. If they're from Sadr city then they're poor. Very poor even by the standards of today's Iraq. Assuming the hospital isn't too full to treat the boy. They're going to have to find money to pay treatment. If the boy needs medicine their best chance of getting it is on the black market at exorbitant rates.

corpse ariving al-kindi june 20 2006This photograph was taken 15 minutes later at the same hospital. The body is that of one of the seven people who died in the same bombing. Just another day in a hospital starved of funds, personnel, medicines, bandages, electricity … … …

Just another day just another atrocity in American occupied Iraq.
