From the previous post, reader Hoefer remembers and tracks down something veddy intahrezting
Someone help me out with this. Wasn't there a similar picture about a month ago? Some old lady's bed catching a couple rounds?
The photographer is the same guy, Wissam al-Okaili.
Here are the two pics and it sure looks like the same lady, and the same idiotic claim. Heh.
AFP/YahooNews Caption: Tuesday August 14, 2007: An elderly Iraqi woman shows two bullets which she says hit her house following an early coalition forces raid in the predominantly Shiite Baghdad suburb of Sadr City. At least 175 people were slaughtered on Tuesday and more than 200 wounded when four suicide truck bombs targeted people from an ancient religious sect in northern Iraq, officials said.(AFP/Wissam al-Okaili)
Anyone know the photog or official agency and caption for this one? Something like "Lady finds bullets embedded in the wall of her peaceful home..."
Update: Blackfive adding captions above, and busting in to add the third photo found by Gryph:
