Iraqi survivors

Some Iraqi survivors are looking for justice.


"Ali Abid Hassan has had 12 long years to consider the virtues of revenge and forgiveness. He has preserved in chilling detail the memory of the night in March 1991 when he should have been executed by Saddam Hussein's firing squad - and how, badly injured but alive, he crawled out from under a heap of bodies and scrambled to freedom.

"Immediately after the fall of the regime two months ago, he was filled with a bitter anger and a thirst for vengeance. Since then, like all Iraqis, he has wrestled with his conscience, and, like some, his temper has calmed.

"While many still yearn for retribution, others are beginning the slow process of bringing to court the men responsible for three decades of unimaginable human rights abuses."
