Car Bombs in Mansour

I attended my 6th grade in an elementary school in Mansour. A few classrooms were dedicated to students who did not speak Arabic very well, but could speak and read English. Everything was taught in English, except Arabic:) Mansour is a largely Sunni Arab neighborhood in west Baghdad, and I remember how nice it was, probably still is. I am so sick of reading about Baghdadis dying violently.
