A suicide car bombing in Iraq killed Marla Ruzicka, an American aid worker, over the weekend. The 28-year-old founder of the Campaign for Innocent Victims of Conflict helped get millions in U.S. aid directed to help families of civilians accidentally killed and injured by U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.
