Tigris River yielding corpses
Tigris River yielding corpses

BAGHDAD, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- The Tigris River, which fed the ancient cradle of civilization, has become a river of death, as hundreds of corpses float south from Baghdad.

A fence-like system of weirs originally trapped lily pads moving downriver from Baghdad, preventing them from clogging irrigation canals. Now they catch corpses floating from the capital, ABCNews.com said.

Local police said they've pulled almost 350 bodies of men, women and children from the filters since January 2005. One of the bodies was that of British aid worker Margaret Hassan, who was abducted in October 2004 in western Baghdad.

Police said most of the bodies appeared to be young people who were shot and then hacked, ABCNews.com reported.

6. And I'd like to know why some reporter and photographer weren't there
to cover it.

The librul media just aren't covering the "good things" that Bush's administration's doing in Iraq. It's their fault when Americans don't hear about these fine pencil giveaways.
