No female photographer has spent as much time in Iraq as Maya Alleruzzo of Associated Press. Today her shot of the aftermath of female suicide bombing in Baquaba leads the NY Times website.
The bomber — the 17th woman to detonate a suicide bomb in Diyala this year, according to official statistics — detonated her explosives near the front of the Court of Appeals building in Baquba, Diyala’s capital, on a street that has a number of government buildings and is closed to cars. It has become known as the “street of suicide bombers and car bombers”because there have been so many explosions there.
