According to the BBC, one of Iraq's leading calligraphers, Khalil al-Zahawi, was shot dead outside his home in Baghdad on Saturday. I am not an expert on calligraphy and was not familiar with his work. What does the loss of an artist mean to a country which has lost so much already? Why was he targeted? I don't know....It just leaves me sad.
