Photo of the Day

In this Tuesday, March 5, 2013 photo, mannequins are used in a display depicting a firing squad and methods of torture used by the Saddam Hussein's regime at the Shaheed Monument in Baghdad, Iraq. Saddam Hussein had the split teardrop-shaped sculpture built in the middle of a manmade lake in the early 1980s to commemorate Iraqis killed in the Iran-Iraq War. The names of hundreds of thousands of fallen Iraqi soldiers are inscribed in simple Arabic script around the base. In recent years, the Shiite-led government has begun turning it into a museum honoring the overwhelmingly Shiite and Kurdish victims of Saddam's Sunni-dominated but largely secular regime.
