In Cold Blood: Iraqi Tells of Massacre at Farmhouse
“Kasim’s corpse was in the corner of the room, and his head was smashed into pieces,” he said. The 5-year-old daughter, Hadel, was beside her father, and Janabi said he could see that Fakhriya’s arms had been broken.

In another room, he found 15-year-old Abeer, naked and burned, with her head smashed in “by a concrete block or a piece of iron.”

“There were burns from the bottom of her stomach to the end of her body, except for her feet,” he said.

“I did not believe what I was seeing. I tried to fool myself into believing I was in a dream. But the problem was that we were not dreaming. We put a piece of cloth over her body. Then I left the house together with my wife.”
