Modern warfare

The wreckage of a car bomb which ripped apart the intellectual heart of Baghdad went on display in London on Thursday as chilling evidence of the impact modern-day conflicts have on civilians.
The buckled and burnt heap of metal was salvaged from the March 5, 2007 attack on the historic Mutanabi Street book market.
The blast killed at least 30 people, leaving body parts scattered among the burning books, and was viewed as an assault on Baghdad's cultural life.
