Iraqi children in the northern city of Mosul; their school (behind them) was bombed by the U.S. on 11/21/99. The U.S. dropped a “concrete” bomb at 1:20pm, just moments before the 400 children were to be let out for an afternoon recess. Dozens of students and teachers were wounded by the shrapnel. According to the school principal: “There was an air-raid siren but we continued the lesson and never expected to be bombed because this was a residential area. In spite of all this we are not afraid -- but the children will hate the American administration. If children were outside they would have been killed by shrapnel -- only by the grace of God was this not another Al-Ameriyah.”
