American Soldier’s Holding Iraqi Children as Pawns

Baghdad – The American occupation army has, today, arrested five children who are under the age of ten, and kept them as pawns in the Iraqi city of Baji. They are intending to keep them until the city inhabitants turn over the children who were shown on TV screens, in the beginning of this week, demonstrating and holding the clothes of American soldiers killed lately in the city centre by a roadside bomb. According to a Baji police source, the American forces have encircled the city and arrested the children, and in the meantime they were urging the public via loud speakers to turnover the wanted children. According to the same source, the American army has threatened that they would storm the city and begin a campaign of house to house searching and arresting people if they wouldn’t turn the wanted children over to the Americans.
