Fear and loathing in Iraq...

Displaced Iraqi Shiite women, driven from their homes in Tal Afar, seek refuge in the hallway of a rundown hotel in the holy city of Karbala, south of Baghdad. Shiite Iraqis are increasingly fleeing religiously mixed villages.

I understand that most members of the small Christian community in Baghdad have already fled the country. Looks like Iraqi society is disintegrating.
