Universities and academics in Baghdad have been among the hardest hit by the violence plaguing Iraq, but students on one campus still found themselves saddened by last week's massacre at Virginia Tech and hung up a banner to express their condolences. "We have lost many friends and professors," Yassir Nazar, head of the student union at the Baghdad Technology University said. "But in spite of our wounds, we want to show our solidarity with the students of Virginia Tech who are our brothers in humanity and in pursuing knowledge."
