Announcement :: Peace & War

Two sisters: Giuliana and Mithal

The text you are about to read is a combination of words that were all written by Giuliana Sgrena, the Italian journalist kidnapped in Irak (for more news about Giuliana you can see: www.rsf.fr/sgrena-en.php3).
Some of them were part of her appeal contained in the video released by her captors (capitalized verses) and the others are from an article she wrote on July 1, 2004 about Mithal, an Iraqi woman detained in Abu Grahib.
