U.S. Erects 'Baghdad Wall' to Keep Sects Apart
U.S. soldiers with the 82nd Airborne Division in Baghdad are “building a three-mile protective wall on the dividing line between a Sunni enclave and the surrounding Shiite neighborhood,” according to a U.S. military press release issued Wednesday.
Troops with the 407th Brigade Support Battalion began constructing the wall on April 10 and will continue work “almost nightly until the wall is complete,” the release read.
