Image 1 of 13


2002: The eight-member family of Iraqi mother Karima Selman Methboub (r.) try to make their youngest son, Mahmoud, smile for a portrait. Mrs. Methboub has been selling furniture to pay school fees, though the family is more concerned about a possible new US-Iraq war. (Mr. Methboub was killed in a 1996 car accident.)
