Iraq: Militants Target Females

Basra militants targeting women

The chief of police in the southern Iraqi city of Basra has warned of a campaign of violence against women carried out by religious extremists.

It has, Maj-Gen Abdul Jalil Khalaf said, included threats, intimidation and even murder.

Some victims were dressed in indecent clothes by their killers or had notices attached to them, he said.

Women interviewed by the BBC said they no longer dared venture on to Basra’s streets without strict Islamic attire.

“There is a terrible repression against women in Basra,” Maj-Gen Khalaf told the BBC.

“They kill women, leave a piece of paper on her or dress her in indecent clothes so as to justify their horrible crimes.”

Forty-two women were killed between July and September this year, although the number dropped slightly in October, he said.

In one case, he added, a woman was killed in her home along with her six-year-old son, who was rumoured to have been conceived in an adulterous relationship.

Maj-Gen Khalaf, sent to Basra this year by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki to impose order in the city, said the police were often too scared to conduct proper investigations into the killings.

“The relatives are reluctant to report the crimes for fear of a scandal or because they despair of the police’s ability to solve them,” he added.

‘Shot in the legs’

A female lawyer in Basra contacted by the BBC by phone from London, who asked not to be named for fear of reprisals, said attacks on women in the city were occurring “every two or three days”.

The lawyer also said that graffiti was painted on walls warning women to cover their heads or “be punished”.

“We warn against immodest dress. Violators will be punished. God is witness that we have conveyed the message.” -Message written on a Basra wall

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
