BAGHDAD, IRAQ, APRIL 8, 2003 - A boy watches his dying mother on the emergency room floor of Kindi Hospital after his brother and sister were killed when a missile landed on their house in the eastern part of Baghdad. Doctors who believed they could do nothing to save the woman moved on to patients who could be helped. Iraqi civilian casualties at hospitals in the capital reached a peak as U.S. forces slowly gained control of the city on the ground.
