Who Died in Baghdad bombing? Watch him dance & imagine 249 Others #baghdadbombing #

Tragedy after tragedy 250 times: Adil Faraj was buying clothes at the Karadeh market for the Islamic holiday of Eid, when the truck bomb detonated and killed the aspiring dancer and recent law school graduate said his brother Bilal al-Jaf. Faraj secretly taught himself how to dance in his cramped family home in Baghdad, hiding from a conservative society scornful of the art form and from the chaos that engulfed Iraq after the US-led invasion in 2003. He made and posted dance videos online and Faraj’s talent caught the eye of Jonathan Hollander, founder of the Battery Dance Company, in 2014.
