"Shock and Awe" Victim. Iraq

Aii Hamid Sharif, 6, is held by her mother, Eimin Fvied, as she screams in pain from burns she suffered in an aerial attack during the invasion of Iraq. She was initially admitted to a hospital but was forced out when Iraqi soldiers took over the facility. Army medics found her during visits to her village home near Baghdad. They treated her and later transported her to a burn unit at a local hospital.
