Photo shows hundreds of Iraqis storming the Abu Ghraib jail Oct. 20, 2002 following the announcement by President Saddam Hussein that most of Iraq's prisoners would be freed. Tens of thousands of prisoners were greeted by their relatives and friends upon their release.
Could it be...that some submitted photos are not slugged correctly or contain proper captions....
