An Iraqi man searching in a mass grave site for remains stops to cry in frustration. Iraqis search a mass grave site for remains in a frantic search for relatives at a mass grave near Hillah, Iraq. They check the bones and clothes for identification papers, jewelery, even cigaret packs, looking for something familiar. The destruction of evidence (of crimes against humanity and of identity) was so great that Human Rights Watch began a campaign to embarass the U.S. military into closing the site.
