This is the hairdresser who was shot dead outside of my house. Her body was lying there for four hours before an American patrol came and cleaned the scene up. I couldn’t get close enough to get a clearer photo because we weren’t sure whether the body was booby trapped—or being watched by snipers. Photo by the author.
