Iraqi Protesters Lynch Teen While Police Stand By

Mistakenly believing that a 16-year-old boy fired on them, a mob of antigovernment protesters stabs him to death. Protest leaders condemn the attack.
The 16-year old lynched by Iraqi protesters in Baghdad yesterday was apparently not a sniper. He had fired a pistol in the air to keep the crowd away from his home. They stabbed him 17 times, slit his throat & hung him by his ankles from a traffic light
