Christmas in Baghdad 2012

After visiting the Our Lady of Salvation Church in central Baghdad, the site of a brutal massacre in 2010, I wandered around some nearby shops to take some Christmas-related photographs. I filed them for the AFP wire, but this is my favourite of the ones that were not used.

Here’s the story I wrote about Christmas Eve mass at the church, and here’s a post about my visit to a different church in Baghdad for Christmas last year.
