Iraqi's use children as human shields
How low can you go.....

(Independant) Iraqi Fedayeen paramilitaries used children as human shields during a battle with British troops, a British tank commander has claimed.
Sergeant David Baird, who commands a Challenger 2 tank from C Squadron of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards battle group, said he had witnessed at least four or five children, aged between five and eight, being grabbed "by the scruff of the neck" and held by Iraqi fighters as they crossed a road in front of his tank.
Sgt Baird said he had been "sickened" by the tactics of the Iraqis, who moments earlier had been firing rocket-propelled grenades at his tank. He said he had been forced to halt any retaliatory fire because of the danger to the children's lives.
