On the decimation of Iraqi intellectuals

The Chronicle: Daily news: 08/31/2005 -- 06: "Three professors at Baghdad's Al-Mustansiriya University were killed last week by unidentified gunmen. The killings are the latest in a string of violent attacks on Iraqi academics, who have become favorite targets of insurgent groups.
More than 50 Iraqi university professors have been killed in the nearly two and a half years since the American-led invasion of Iraq, according to a recent United Nations-financed report on the state of Iraq's universities. "
