Mass Grave a Quarter Mile Long Found in Iraq "Captain Hawez, the police officer, walked in the graveyard this afternoon, head down, dust rising as he slowly strolled, his subordinates keeping a little distance. He seemed near to tears. His story was dark. 'I loved a Kurdish girl,' he said. 'The Iraqi regime took her when we were young.' He paused and swallowed, before explaining his reddened eyes: 'Every time I find new graves I feel like it is her in the ground.'" (from The New York Times).
