Five-year-old Youssif is scarred for life, his once beautiful smile turned into a grotesquely disfigured face -- the face of a horrifying act by masked men. They grabbed him on a January day outside his central Baghdad home, doused him with gas and set him ablaze.
It's an act incomprehensibly savage, even by Iraq's standards today. No one has been arrested and the motive remains unknown.

As to the boy being helped so he could "lead a close to normal life"... I honestly wonder: is it really worth it?
Is it worth living in this world, such as it is (and such as it has been ever since humankind first set foot on it)?
