Barzan, Iraq. July 14, 2014.A Kurdish man stands next to an empty coffin that once contained the remains of a villager from Barzan, the hometown of President Masoud Barzani. In the late 1980's, Saddam Hussein's forces targeted Barzan, launching several attacks and massacres against its population as part of the Al Anfal campaign against the Kurds. Many of the victims were sent to southern Iraq, where they were executed or buried alive in mass graves.
