President George W. Bush says good bye to Dr. Katrin Michael, foreground, Della Jaff and Idres Hawarry in the Oval Office Friday, March 14, 2003, after speaking with them. The three are from the Kurdish area of Iraq where a chemical weapons attack killed 5,000 citizens 15 years ago this weekend. Thousands died in the days following the attack on Halabja and an estimated 10,000 people still suffer from the attack. Idres Hawarry survived the attack on Halabja, Dr. Michael survived a similar attack in another Kurdish village and friends and family of Della Jaff were killed in Halabja.
