NYT43 - (NYT43) BAGHDAD, Iraq -- March 17, 2005 -- IRAQ-BARBERS-3 -- An Iraqi barber looks out towards the street while cutting hair in his barber shop in the Al Dora neighborhood in Baghdad, in March 2005. The barber was one of many barbers threatened by insurgents several months ago for shaving his clients and giving them specific haircuts. In southern Baghdad, the hazards of life have come to this: gangs of militant Islamists have been warning barbers that it is haram -- forbidden -- to shave mens beards or do Western-style haircuts or facial treatments. At least five have been killed, Iraqi officials say. (Joao Silva/The New York Times)
