Girl screams after watching US soldiers shoot her parents in front of her in Tal Afar, Iraq (January 18, 2005) 

US Soldiers with the 1st Battalion, 5th Infantry Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the 25th Infantry Division out of Ft. Lewis, opened fire on a car when it failed to stop and came toward soldiers despite warning shots during a dusk patrol in Tal Afar, Iraq.

The car, which held a frightened Iraqi family, was riddled with bullets and the mother and father were killed. Their five children survived in the backseat, one with a non-life threatening flesh wound.
