Iraqi children in the
northern city of Mosul; their school (behind them)
was bombed by the U.S.
on 11/21/99. The U.S.
dropped a “concrete” bomb at ,
just moments before the 400 children were to be let out for an afternoon
recess.Dozens of students and
teachers were wounded by the shrapnel.According to the school principal: “There was an air-raid siren but
we continued the lesson and never expected to be bombed because this was
a residential area.In spite
of all this we are not afraid -- but the children will hate the American
administration.If children were
outside they would have been killed by shrapnel -- only by the grace of
God was this not another Al-Ameriyah.”
