Photographs From Iraq: May 1 - 20, 2006

A selection of recent photos from the war in Iraq.: Riots in Basra, resistance in Ramadi, killing everywhere.

Photographs From Iraq: May, 2006

Anti-occupation riots in Basra, the Americans keep killing people in the un-occupiable city of Ramadi, and the civil war continues, vicious as ever. The last new photos for a while..


A Mayday rally in Basra, May 1st.


A Shiite man and the Imam Ali shrine in Najaf, May 3.


American soldiers search a home in Fallujah, same day.


Also on the same day, Kurdish people flee their homes in the Razgan area near Sulaimaniyah, in northern Iraq, as the Iranian military shelled across the border. Both Turkey and Iran reportedly shelled Iraqi Kurdistan, used as a base by Kurdish guerillas seeking an independent land for their people in those countries. Neither the U.S. government or the Iraqi government it installed seemed too concerned about the shelling - strange considering that the U.S apparently wants to start a war with Iran.


In Baghdad that day, the Yarmuk morgue was overflowing once again, as 14 death squad victims were brought in. Video


On May 6, Iraqi resistance fighters shot down a British helicopter in Basra. Hundreds of people cheered at the scene, and threw rocks and molotovs at the Brits who responded to the crash. The Brits opened fire, killing as many as 4 people. It was said that Mahdi Army militiamen fired upon the Brits on the ground as well..


..but the people they shot who were photographed do not appear to be armed.


Clearly though, many oridinary people in Basra were fed up with the British occupation.


..and were ready to take whatever action they could against it


A wounded man is evacuated. Four people, including two children, were killed and 17 wounded in the clashes.


"Suspected insurgents" kidnapped by the U.S.-installed Iraqi army in Baqouba, May 9.


People in Basra rallied against cuts in electricity service on the 10th; some threatened to occupy government buildings.


Iraqi cop, Baghdad, same day.


This man, General Mehdii Musabah, was described by AFP as a "police commando commander" of the Interior Ministry; he may be in charge of some of the death squads that have tortured and murdered hundreds of people in Iraq.


A horse race in the Kurdish city of Qara Dagh, May 12.


Around 1,500 teachers held a protest in Baghdad on the 14th, demanding better pay and working conditions.


Elsewhere in the city that day, a roadside bomb missed a police patrol and killed several civilians.


Aftermath of fighting between Iraqis and American occupation forces in Ramadi, May 15. The Americans will no longer admit when one of their number is killed in Ramadi, where small battles take place daily; instead issue they statements about soldiers being killed "in Anbar province" days after the fact. Naturally, the American journalists in the Green Zone make no attempt to obtain information other than what they are given in military "briefings".


At the funeral for Yasir Khoider and Alaa Dharam, in Sadr City on the same day. The two were killed in "recent sectarian violence"..


Also on the same day, around 600 people denounced the local governor of Basra after he fired the mayor. The governor had recently announced that he would resume collaborations with the Brits...meanwhile, at least 5 British soldiers were killed in southern Iraq that week, and more were injured in a huge mortar barrage on one of their bases on the 15th.


An attack on Shiite civilians left at least 17 people, including the man in the foreground's brother, dead in Baghdad on the 16th.


May 19, Baghdad. One soldier was reported injured.


Iraqis threw stones at British occupiers in Basra again on the 20th, after a roadside bomb stuck a military vehicle and injured two soldiers.


Same day, Ramadi


Also on the same day, a bomb killed 20 people and injured many more in a Shiite area of Baghdad, as part of the low-level civil war caused by the continuing presence of the foreign troops.
