URGENT ACTION NEEDED!! (see below)

We now know that the missile that killed more than 60 in a Baghdad market was made in America and fired by a U.S. bomber, probably a B-52.

Links can be found here (but never mind that story for now)

The latest story, one that we must act on, is here:

Children killed in US assault

Ewen Mackaskill in Washington and Suzanne Goldenberg in Baghdad

Wednesday April 2, 2003

The Guardian

Dozens of Iraqi villagers were killed and injured in a ferocious American air and land assault near the Iraqi city of Babylon, hospital officials in the town said yesterday.

Reuters reporters on the scene confirmed the deaths of at least nine children, two other civilians and two Iraqi fighters at Hilla in a bombardment on Monday night and early yesterday morning.

An Iraqi hospital official said the death toll stood at 33 civilians, with more than 300 wounded.

Unedited TV footage from Babylon hospital, which was seen by the Guardian, showed the tiny corpse of a baby wrapped up like a doll in a funeral shroud and carried out of the morgue on a pink pallet.

It was laid face-to-face on the pavement against the body of a boy, who looked about 10.

Horrifically injured bodies were heaped into pick-up trucks, and were swarmed by relatives of the dead, who accompanied them for burial.

Bed after bed of injured women and children were pictured along with large pools of blood on the floor of the hospital.

"All of these are due to the American bombing to the civilian homes. Hundreds of civilians have been injured, and many have been killed," said Nazim al-Adali, an Edinburgh-trained doctor at the hospital, who appealed to his "colleagues" in England to protest against the bombings.

Among the injured in the women's ward was Aliya Mukhtaf, who said her husband and her six children were killed in the attack. The TV pictures also showed a teenage boy with bandages over the stump where his right hand was sheared off by shrapnel.

"There are not any army cars or tanks in the area," said Dr al-Adali, who claimed cluster bombs had been used.

Several of those interviewed on TV described large tank movements as the US tried to advance the final 50 miles to Baghdad.

"God take our revenge on America," a stunned man said repeatedly at the hospital. Hospital staff said the man's whole family was wiped out.

"What has he done wrong, what has he done wrong?" the driver of a pick-up truck ferrying the dead said as he held the body of an infant.

Residents said US forces had attacked the town on Monday but were pushed back by regular and irregular Iraqi forces. As the Americans retreated, they shelled the town, the residents said. One US soldier was reported killed in the action on Monday.
