Democracy in Najaf
Iraq Fact of the Day
Democracy is taking root in Najaf, where members of the provincial council came together today for a historic meeting to nominate their next governor. Earlier this week, more than 200 men and women celebrated the opening of a new democracy center. The Human Rights and Democracy Center is near the site of several recently discovered mass graves. The center was established to help Iraqis learn more about creating a democratic, sovereign Iraq.
