Tensions High in Baghdad Neighborhoods

In this cell phone video footage, shopkeepers and residents in Baghdad's Karrada neighborhood mob a truck carrying 31 Sri Lankan, Indian, and Nepalese contract workers after a shooting incident that injured an 18-year-old student. The crowd, believing the workers were Afghan terrorists, cheer as Iraqi soldiers arrive to beat the workers. Karrada is a mostly Shiite enclave. Video by Ahmed Hekhet
