In Baghdad
Hospitals Overwhelmed By Living and the Dead

BAGHDAD, April 7 -- Its sirens wailing, the cream-colored ambulance barreled into the compound of Baghdad's Kindi Hospital. Doctors in blue scrubs -- some of them working night and day -- rushed forward, swinging open its doors.

Gingerly, they put Sabria Hussein on a stretcher, its leather still soaked in blood. They moved toward another stretcher, driving away hordes of flies, and rolled Abdel-Karim Youssef into an emergency room suffused with the stench of blood, dirt and disinfectant.


"Let's go! Let's go!" shouted a doctor. "Take him to the men's ward." Down the hall, a woman in black chador sobbed, "Oh, mother! Oh, mother!"
