A group of Iraqi Emos (the subculture) and others with similar styles who live in the predominantly Shia Baghdad suburb of Sadr City received a death notice (picture above) from self-formed religious police. The letter, which includes the names of those threatened, opens with a few lines (and lots of misspellings) giving the Emos "four days" to change their style, or risk facing "God's punishment" at the hands of "mujahidin."
Twenty-two Iraqi Emos have been killed so far, according to reports. Their heads were smashed using building blocks.
