Library in Baghdad Juvenile Prison

A U.S. army captain, who in civilian life is a lawyer in Indianapolis, helped start a library in Baghdad’s only juvenile prison. Captain David Seiter asked friends back home to donate Arabic-language materials, and yesterday the library officially opened in Karkh Juvenile Detention Facility. The inmates here, who are 13-18 years old, are not insurgents against the U.S. forces; they are mainly convicted of armed robbery, though some are convicted of rape and murder. Some more detail is in this Associated Press story.
