This shelters which built to protect civilians from death, but it turned to a Graveyard for them

Three blogs, each dedicated to collecting articles about a controversial Iraq shelter:

Jadriya Bunker: the first secret prison discovered in Iraq after 2003, where torture of Sunnis was systematic during the tumultuous administration of Interior minister Badr-affiliated Baqir Solagh in 2005

Amiriyah shelter: which was bombed by Ameican warplanes in 13-2-1991 during the Gulf war.

The 27-year-old Sahab gives a long laugh:  “The Iraqi government doesn’t bother me when I publish news and facts about the situation in Iraq in my blog.”

“I write under a pseudonym so no one knows my real identity,” he says, explaining this choice: “If the government finds out who I am, it will start to follow me and restrict me.”

Sahab’s smile is filled with hope when he adds:  “I know it’s dangerous to write but it’s important to document the suffering of the people and help them by letting others know the truth. I don’t want the crimes that happened in my country to be forgotten.”
