The Globe in it's comment section (and I think it appeared on the Star's front page) had what I thought was a good picture of a British woman soldier getting handed something from an Iraqi... but I haven't ben able to find it.

Anyway, the NY Times has some really neat pictures:

They shouldn't be taking pictures of people in those humiliating positions.

PS. What the HELL is that HUGE FREAKING GREEN THING?

Looks like one of those modern art sculptures. Whatever it is, it looks pretty interesting. I'd love to know what it is and how it is significant too.

And yeah, for an army that is so sensitive to pictures taken of their POWs, they sure don't mind when the shoe is on the other foot.

I believe it is a monument, could it be to the dead of the Iran-Iraq war? I have seen it before. The Ba'athist regime was always strong on cultural references to the architecture of the many civilisations of the land between the Tigris and the Euphrates, from Sumeria to the onion domes of the Thousand and One Nights.
