An Iraqi woman, covered in a hejab, lifts a Kalashnikov rifle in front of the offices of Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr in the impoverished Baghdad suburb of Al Sadr City April 7, 2004. U.S.-led forces battled Sunni guerrillas in two cities on Wednesday and grappled with a radical Shi'ite uprising in a two-front war that has killed at least 33 soldiers and 170 Iraqis in three days. The U.S. military confirmed on Wednesday that 12 Marines had been killed the previous day in a seven-hour battle in the Sunni Muslim city of Ramadi, 68 miles west of Baghdad. (Laszlo Balogh/Reuters)

An Iraqi woman sits beneath a defaced billboard advertising the new police force, in central Baghdad April 7, 2004. Despite Iraq (news - web sites)'s spiraling violence, its U.S.-led occupiers insist the transition to democracy they have planned is the best thing to happen to the country for decades. And with three months to go until the transition begins, they hope a $5.8 million advertising campaign will help convince Iraqis they are right.

Iraqi women at Baghdad's Sunni Muslim Abu Khanifa mosque donate their blood for wounded people in the embattled town of Falluja April 7, 2004. The bloody clashes with Shi'ites that have raged since Sunday in other areas are a new front for U.S.-led forces already fighting an insurgency in Sunni towns and trying to pacify Iraq (news - web sites) before a June 30 handover of sovereignty to an Iraqi government.
