HILLA, IRAQ, MAY 15, 2003 - Female family members wail and beat themselves in Shiite tradition as a coffin containing the remains of brothers Naim and Fasal is brought home for mourning. The two were killed when Saddam Hussein's regime crushed Shiite uprisings in central and southern Iraq in 1991. The men's mother, cousins, and widows searched newly uncovered mass graves for more than a week before locating the brothers' identity cards in clothing tangled in their bones.
