Photo journal: Vivian's story

One year ago, Vivian Salem Mate lost her husband Nasim and three children - Husam, 15, Wasim, 12 and Merna, 6, - when an American tank shelled their car as the family attempted to flee heavy fighting in Baghdad.

Since then she has struggled to rebuild her life, but can't forgive the Americans for killing her family.

"If they want the oil, they can take it. Is it worth more than my children? They didn't even leave me one," she says.
