Iraq Police: defiant in the face of adversity

Today is National Police Day in Iraq, but it's been a rough day for the police force. During their celebration in the Interior Ministry in Baghdad, two suicide bombers disguised as high-ranking officers killed at least 29 people and injured 18, most of them police officers. The attack is claimed by al-Qaida as retribution for relatively high Sunni turnout in December's parliamentary elections.

Police in Basra, undaunted by this violence, formed a human pyramid.
