Tempestade de areia “suicida” ataca soldados Americanos no Iraque

The US-led coalition forces in Iraq face violent attacks and suicide bombings, but nature has its hazards as well - like this dramatic desert sandstorm.
The storm hit on Tuesday, at the former Iraqi airbase at al-Asad, about 180 km (110 miles) west of Baghdad, now home to a US marine corps unit.
The sandstorm approaching at around 60 mph (95 km/h) engulfed people, buildings and equipment.
Experts say such storms are extremely rare in Iraq, and can spring up almost without warning. Pictures taken by Gunnery Sergeant Shannon Aldredge, US marine corps photographer.
