In Iraq, a boy named 'War' turns 6

Iman Kadhim felt the contractions at 2 a.m. on March 20, 2003. The streets of Baghdad were deserted; people cowered in their homes awaiting the U.S. invasion. But the baby wasn't going to wait. A neighbor with a car gave Iman and her husband a ride to the hospital. They heard the baby's first cry before dawn. Then they heard the first explosions. They named their new son Harb — Arabic for war.
