Abeer Qassim Hamza al-Janabi was a 14-year old Iraqi
girl who lived in the village of Mahmoudiyah southeast
of Baghdad. She was gang-raped, killed and burned by
American troops. Her parents and her younger sister
were also shot and killed. Initial details published
by the American media incorrectly reported Abeer's age
as 25. Her case has come to symbolize the brutality of
the U.S. occupation.
