US Bombs Children's Hospital in Baghdad - 28 March, 2003

One of Baghdad's main children's hospitals was destroyed last night during a bombing raid on suburbs of the Iraqi capital. Fortunately, there were no casualties, as half an hour before the raid all the patients were evacuated to a bomb shelter.

The Iraqi authorities said that the attack on the children's hospital was an international crime for which Britain and the US would 'be held responsible before an international tribunal.'
