Iraqi poets and writers gather at Mutannabi Street in mourning
At the scene of the Mutannabi Street bombing, Iraqi poet Jabbar Muhaibs put a wooden crate on his head to mourn the death of cultural life in Baghdad. "The light will not be lit here again," he said. Then, Muhaibs, a lecturer at the Baghdad Fine Arts Academy, leapt atop a burnt out car and recited: "What has happened to the poems and the poetry, all covered in blood and lying with the scattered souls and the bodies beneath the rubble?"
