|Abu Ghraib, October 20, 2002
Shortly after state-run Iraqi television announced that President
Saddam Hussein was giving amnesty to all inmates in Iraqi jails, friends
and relatives of inmates converged on the Abu Ghraib prison. Clapping,
singing and praising Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, thousands overran
guards and pushed inside.
Many people brought posters or framed photographs of Iraqi President
Saddam Hussein. Soldiers alternately pushed people back and told them
to hold the pictures higher.
