al Jazeera reports heavy bombing, civilian casualties in Basra
An al Jazeera camera crew reports that at least 50 civilians have been killed in Basra, with hospitals full of injured Iraqis. (Can anyone out there translate this story into English?)
**note: The Washington Post is now reporting on this.**
Yes, it's gruesome, but unlike Western media coverage, it shows the true cost of war. It's also likely to be the image that much of the Arab world will wake up to tomorrow morning.
