Columbia residents marked the five-year anniversary of the Iraq War during a peace vigil on Monday at the Boone County Courthouse. Maha Mahir, 6, holds the hand of her father, Zaid, while she and her sister, 4-year-old Ghada, listen to the list of Iraqis who have been killed since the war began in 2003. The Mahir family is originally from Iraq, with Zaid coming about a year ahead of his wife and two daughters, all of whom arrived in 2006. Four thousand American troops have also been killed in the war as of Monday.
Missourian photographers captured images of a peace rally for the Iraq War, a fire at Arrow Head Motel, an Easter baptism and lots and lots of sports this week.
MU's Jacob Priday is hit by a pitch to end the Tigers' game against Baylor on March 23. Baylor had loaded the bases after falling behind 11-2 in the seventh inning before striking Priday, which allowed Lee Fischer to walk home from third base for the final run.
