This undated photo released by security officials shows convicted rapist and murderer, Akram al-Mayahi, makes his confessions to raping and killing four-year old Banin Haider, to a judge at the interrogation room in courts complex in Basra 340 miles (550 kilometers) southeast of Baghdad, Iraq. The crimes were particularly brutal, even by the standards of a country where insurgents can still kill dozens in single day: Two young girls kidnapped, repeatedly raped and killed with blows to the head in Iraq's southern Basra province.
