Is the Red Cross Now a Bull's-Eye?

November 2003
Time International (South Pacific Edition);11/10/2003, Issue 44, p35
The article talks about the Red Cross, composed of Western relief workers forced to work in Iraq and have been targeted dozens of times since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein's regime in April 2003. Aid workers have been pushed around in Somalia, terrorized in East Timor, taken hostage in Bosnia and murdered in Chechnya. Combatants who are determined to undermine order have learned that upsetting relief work is a promising tactic.
