Announcement

Zeyad has updated on the same subject.. Just so that you'll know!

Fayrouz has a more trustable update on the same issue.. I completely forgot that she is a Christian from Basrah, weird!

It looks like the girl did not die, but she's lost her eye.. Read the post, it's worth it.

There were dozens of them, armed with guns, and they poured into the park,” Ali al-Azawi, 21, the engineering student who had organised the gathering in Basra, said.

“They started shouting at us that we were immoral, that we were meeting boys and girls together and playing music and that this was against Islam.


One brought a video camera to record the sinful spectacle of the picnic, footage of which was later released to the public as a warning to others.

It showed images of one girl struggling as a gunman ripped her blouse off, leaving her half-naked. “We will send these pictures to your parents so they can see how you were dancing naked with men,” a gunman told her. Two students who went to her aid were shot — one in the leg, the other twice in the stomach. The latter was said to have died of his injuries. Fellow students say that the girl later committed suicide. Another girl who was severely beaten around the head lost her sight.

We beat them because we are authorised by Allah to do so and that is our duty,” Sheik Ahmed al-Basri said after the attack. “It is we who should deal with such disobedience and not the police.”

After escaping with two students, Ali reached a police station and asked for help. “What do you expect me to do about it?” a uniformed officer asked.


sadr and his muslim fanatics must be brought to justice...

I can't believe the reaction of the cops. Who else will protect the civilians if they're not willing to help in situations like these.

bosaxi,

I have my doubts about the suicide part of the story, which was only reported on this newspaper.

The Head of Basra university denied any female students being killed in result of the attack.

Hi Everybody,

It's important to note Zeyad updated yet again. USA Today also has a bit about it. The link is at Z's post. I hope we'll know more soon. Very disturbing details in those articles. This is not an acceptable future for Iraq.
