ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPH
Screen grab of an improvised rocket assisted munition, or IRAM, from a video recorded by an antigovernment activist. The image shows a work-shop grade warhead affixed to the familiar 107-mm rocket. These weapons have a rich and very particular history in a Shiite group in Iraq, and have turned up in Syria. More about this soon.
