  • La guerra uccide non solo d'estate
    Le parole di saluto di Salar Hussein mi arrivano dirette allo stomaco: “Pregate per noi”. Nella loro naturalità, dicono più di tanti discorsi.

    La guerra uccide non solo d'estate

    Il popolo curdo consapevole di avere vissuto una pace provvisoria. La minoranza yazida memore di innumerevoli persecuzioni nel passato. La storia sembra ripetersi ma questa volta il rischio di sconvolgimenti permanenti nei popoli della regione è tragicamente reale.

    La III Guerra in Iraq, stavolta senza tamburi. Un motivo c'è

    Ancora una guerra in Iraq! Ma questa volta niente allarmismi. Governo e stampa non cercano di venderci un intervento italiano, anzi, ne parlano appena appena. Come mai? Da una tavola rotonda ISPI dell'7 luglio a Roma (Centro Studi Americani) forse la risposta.

Iraq: bombe su Bassora: una strage; molti i bambini uccisi dice il sindaco della citta' Wail Abd al-Hafidh

21 aprile 2004 - Aljazeera

Basra bombs kill dozens

Locals pelted British troops as they rushed to the attack site

At least 68 people are believed to have died and many more been injured in attacks on four police buildings in the southern Iraqi city of Basra.

Mortars ripped through two stations in the central Ashar district early on Wednesday morning, according to Basra police chief General Muhammad al-Ali.

A British military spokesman, Squadron Leader John Arnold, said the third police station, in the Old City, was destroyed by a car bomb at 07:15 local time. (03:15 GMT)

And two people died when a fourth bomb damaged the police academy and detention centre building in central Basra, according to one governorate councillor, Issam Hazim.

Basra's mayor, Wail Abd al-Hafidh, said around 100 people had been seriously injured and that many children were among the dead and wounded.

Body count

The Sadr University Hospital's Dr Ali Ainali confirmed that at least 55 bodies had been brought to the morgue, though staff say there may be more bodies to come.

Three women and two children are among the 25 wounded taken in at another hospital in Basra.

But many more children are believed dead or seriously wounded as two school buses were caught up in the blasts.

Arnold added that although no British soldiers had been injured, they were being prevented from reaching two of the bomb sites because locals were stoning troops.

More attacks

Only an hour before the attacks, resistance fighters in the Iraqi town of Falluja and US forces began exchanging machine gun fire, mortars and grenades.


More than 600 Fallujans have
been killed since 5 April

Skirmishes were most intense in the town's Golan district at about 06:00 local time.

Occupation forces managed to limit the extent of the fighting by calling in air support.

No more truce

The fighting came hours after US Defence Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld said the truce in Falluja would not continue indefinitely.

He said days of talks involving Iraqi and Sunni Muslim
leaders, Falluja officials and representatives of the US
governing authority in the city did not include Iraqi resistance fighters.

The US marines launched an assault on the city 50km west of Baghdad on 5 April after the killing and mutilation of
four private US security guards the previous week.

Doctors say more than 600 Iraqis have died in fighting in Falluja since.
