A Bodyguard in Baghdad (and Other Places)

Page 8

It's not all fun and games in Baghdad - shit happens and people die. Below are pictures of a car-bomb that went off just outside Assassins' Gate, one of the Green Zone's high-security entrances. I understand that the investigation showed that the bomber wasn't a willing trigger-man - he was forced to drive to the gate by a few armed insurgents in a vehicle right behind him. Once he got close to the gate he must have decided that he had nothing more to lose; he detonated the car-bomb and took them with him. One brave man, that.
