...the kinds of people we're up against.
The body of a blonde-haired woman with her legs and arms cut off and throat slit was found Sunday lying on a street in Fallujah, a notorious Iraqi enclave for hostage-takers, marines said.
“It is definitely a Caucasian woman with long blonde hair,” said a military official, who cut open a cover that had been over the corpse.
The gruesome discovery was made as the marines moved through the south of Fallujah, hunting out the remaining rebels after a week of fierce fighting to regain control of the city.
“It is a female . . . missing all four appendages, with a slashed throat and disemboweled, she has been dead for a while but only in this location for a day or two,” said Benjamin Finnell, a hospital apprentice with the Navy Corps, who had inspected the body.
An Agence France-Presse photographer embedded with the marines noted that the woman was wearing a blue dress and her face was completely disfigured.
