Meaningless massacre

, September 4, 2013

Women react near empty coffins as they wait to claim the bodies of their relatives, who were killed by gunmen, outside a hospital morgue in Mahmudiya, 30 km (19 miles) south of Baghdad, on September 4. Gunmen shot dead 16 members of the same Shi'ite family before blowing up their two neighbouring homes south of the Iraqi capital overnight, police and medics said. The attack took place in the town of Latifiya, 40 km south of Baghdad. The dead included six children and eight women. Reuters/Ibrahim Jassam
