Women and Children Murdered in Iraq

Fox News is reporting more today about Muslim women and children being killed by insurgents. Out of 26 Iraqi bodies found in al-Rumana, both CNN and Fox reported that one was a woman. Both also report that 15 beheaded bodies were found in Latifiya. Fox, however, states in an AP article that, “The bodies included 10 men, three women and two children.” Fox’s article also states:

While Sunni Arab insurgents have repeatedly targeted Westerners in Iraq, Shiite Muslims, top Iraqi officials and civil servants, even Muslim women are no longer safe. Decapitated bodies of women have begun turning up in recent weeks, a note with the word "collaborator" usually pinned to their chests. Three women were gunned down Tuesday in one of Baghdad's Shiite neighborhoods for being alleged collaborators. And in the northern city of Kirkuk, a woman identified as Nawal Mohammed, who worked with U.S. forces, was killed in a drive-by shooting, police said.
