He has flown RC airplanes since joining the Firnas Aero Club located in the Diyala province in 1994. His passion for the sport pushed him to take up studies in aerodynamics and electronics. But after the U.S. led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the sectarian violence of 2006 and 2007, Oun and his colleagues were forced to abandon their hobby for several years.

    Doe-eyed and adorable Kheer Allah lives with his mother, father, two brothers and sister. Their "home" has no furniture and no modern appliances, except for an old television and radio sitting precariously atop a stack of used tires. There's no meat on this family's table. Home-baked pita bread is the staple in this beyond-poor household. School is out of the question too. Young Kheer Allah must work every day to help his family survive. Boy of Baghdad is the heartbreaking, and very real, story of a remarkable boy forced to grow up much too quickly, in a dangerous world gone mad with politics and fanaticism. One that has sadly ignored its most vulnerable citizens, its children.

Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #4 The Baghdad Battery In 1938, German archaeologist Wilhelm Konigwhile was on a dig just outside Baghdad in modern day Iraq when he found a five-inch-long clay jar containing a copper cylinder that encased an iron rod. The vessel had clear signs of corrosion. Testing revealed that an acidic agent like vinegar or wine had been inside the cylinder and the rod. The battery-like item has been dated to around 200 B.C., which is known as the Parthian era. The Parthians were a warrior society not noted for scientific achievement. Replicas of the Baghdad batteries can conduct electricity. Some experts think that the early Iraqis were using wine, vine...

At the maternity ward, forensic teams in masks and protective gloves were seen searching through the rubble and charred pieces of furniture. A yellow tape stretched across the ward entrance, preventing reporters from getting closer. Iraqi Health Ministry advisor Dr. Amir al-Mukhtar said the fire took hold quickly and created a lot of damage. He said eight babies were saved and taken to other hospitals in the area.

People standing looking at tyre-made chairs LEADIN: A tyre repairer in Iraq is recycling tyres destined for the rubbish dump and transforming them into colourful pieces of furniture. Not only are Ahmed Hameed Hamza's creations popular with customers, they help avoid the tyres being burned and polluting the environment. STORYLINE: Looking at this pile of abandoned tyres you might thing you were at a rubbish dump or recycling plant. However these thick, grey pieces of rubber will soon be transformed into interesting pieces of furniture thanks to a tyre repairer with a creative eye. Ahmed Hameed Hamza is from the Diwanya province 80 miles (130 km) south of Baghdad, and here at his workshop he turns tyres into everything from chairs and clocks to pots and vases. ''We use outdated and leftover tyres to manufacture numerous kinds of furniture that could be useful for people. Instead of throwing abandoned tyres in the garbage or burning them, which will cause pollution, we decided to manufacture several kinds of furniture such as chairs and vases to make money and help others," explains Hamza. Hamza started making the tyre furniture as a way to make extra money on top of his regular day job fixing punctured tyres. Four chairs plus a small table costs 100,000 Iraqi dinars (USD $90) and a large vase is 15,000 Iraqi dinars (USD $40). Customer Shakir Jassim Oda is a big fan of the creations. ''It is really a nice idea to make different kinds of furniture from abandoned tyres which are in fact regarded trash that and will eventually cause environment contamination in the city. Now he (Hamza) turns them into nice and beautiful items which families could use as furniture. Thus, we come to buy some of them,'' he says. Cheap furniture such as this is particularly welcome in Iraq which is suffering severe financial problems because of plunging oil prices. Oil revenue makes up nearly 95 percent of the national budget. ==== You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/ed3765f585c213037b66cb8758ed1f99 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

We immediately went down, we saw thick smoke billowing.'' 15. Wide of men at furniture shop STORYLINE: Residents of the New Baghdad neighbourhood of the Iraqi capital took stock of the damage to their businesses and homes on Sunday, after two separate car bombs exploded in the area. The attacks tore through bustling commercial streets on Saturday night in Shiite areas of Baghdad, part of a relentless wave of violence that killed at least 46 inside and outside the capital. One woman living in the neighbourhood, Um Abas, said two of here daughters had been injured in the attack. ''Broken glass fell on our heads. One of my daughters was wounded. Another was severely injured," she said, as one of her daughters stood with a bandaged head alongside her. "Blood started pouring from her ears. We immediately went down, we saw thick smoke billowing.'' The car bombs were detonated after the iftar meal that breaks the daily fast of the holy month of Ramadan, when many people head out to the shops or relax in coffee houses in the evening after fasting ends. Bombings and other attacks have now killed more than 250 people since the start of Ramadan on 10 July, according to an Associated Press count. Although there was no immediate claim of responsibility, coordinated bombings against Shiites are a favourite tactic of al-Qaida's Iraq branch. A senior Iraqi intelligence official, who is not allowed to speak publicly to journalists, said the coordinated nature of the car bombings strongly indicates al-Qaida is responsible. The violence is a continuation of a surge of bloodshed that has rocked Iraq for months, reviving fears of a return to the widespread sectarian killings that pushed the country to the brink of civil war after the 2003 US-led invasion.

Three British soldiers were killed in the fighting. A column of more than 40 armoured personnel carriers and tanks plowed deep into the city, where British forces and Iraqi fighters have waged exhaustive battles for control since the war began. The 7th Armoured Brigade launched an attack from the west and battled their way toward the city centre, killing an unknown number of paramilitary fighters and taking others prisoner. The brigade, known as "Desert Rats" were joined by elements of 3 Armoured Brigade that had come up from the south and were on the edge of the old city of Basra. It was the deepest British forces have moved into the southern city, Iraq's second largest with a population of 1.3 million. Previously, British forces have remained on the outskirts of town and staged raids and incursions from those positions. British forces faced some resistance, but were able to move freely in the city. People were seen moving furniture out of the Ba'ath Party headquarters, but it was not clear whether they were members or looters. The incursion came a day after coalition aircraft bombed a compound in Basra belonging to Saddam's notorious cousin General Ali Hassan al-Majid, known as "Chemical Ali".

(10 Aug 2016) LEAD IN The Iraqi National Museum has been restored following damage caused by the 2003 invasion and the Islamic State group. With help from the US, Italy and Japan national heritage dating back thousands of years is now back on display. STORY-LINE Dating back between 1800-613 BC, artefacts such as these could have been lost forever after Baghdad fell to U.S. military forces in 2003. The Iraqi Museum was exposed to crime such as theft and looting, but now many of these treasures have been retrieved and restored. "Most of its antiquities, ruins and furniture were smashed," explains Deputy Minister of Culture, Qais Hussein Rasheed. "We worked hard along with other friendly countries, mainly the U.S., Italy and Japan, to rehabilitate the museum.'' Iraqi officials frequently caution the world that Iraqi ancient antiquities are under threat, especially in more recent years when the Islamic State group took over vast territories in the north and west of Iraq. "Recently, we are facing a new problem which is that the enemy (the extremists) bulldozed and torpedoed the archaeological sites. So we lost more than 150 archaeological sites, temples monasteries and churches dated to the Ottoman reign," says Rasheed. The Islamic state group looted and destroyed several ancient sites in Iraq and Syria as part of its campaign to cleanse the territory it controlled of items the extremists deem as non-Islamic. The militants "bulldozed" the renowned archaeological site of the ancient city of Nimrud in northern Iraq. Nimrud was the second capital of Assyria, an ancient kingdom that began in about 900 B.C. But thanks to recent restoration Assyrian and other Iraqi artifacts are now once again proudly on display at the Iraqi National Museum.

We aggressively patrol across the country every day. Just last week there was a similar attack with the 101st. We've had similar attacks here in Baghdad. It's one of the tactics that the enemy is using. At this point in time there's no way we could tie this directly to the incidents of two days ago." Saiddiya, Baghdad 7.

Man cleaning up house 18. Close up of forced door lock STORYLINE: Three American soldiers were killed on Thursday when their convoy was hit by gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades in northern Iraq, a US military spokeswoman said. It was the second attack in two days that killed members of the 101st Airborne Division, which led the intense but sporadic fiery assault in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul that killed Udai and Qusai Hussein on Tuesday. A spokesman for the Coalition Joint Task Force 7 said he did not believe there was any link between Thursday's attack and the killing of Udai and Qusai Hussein. The soldiers were traveling in a convoy toward Qayyarah, 300 kilometers (186 miles) north of the capital, when they were attacked at about 02:30 local time (2330 GMT), according to a military spokeswoman. No other soldiers in the convoy near Mosul were wounded. Footage from the scene showed dried brown bloodstains on the dry grass verge beside the road and tyre marks in the field beside the road. It is not clear whether the tyre marks were from the ambushed American vehicle or a car used by the attackers. The deaths brought to 158 the number of American servicemen killed in action since the war began 20 March this year, surpassing by 11 the death toll in the 1991 Gulf War. In Baghdad, a US army convoy was attacked by insurgents with rocket propelled grenades as it was making its way through the southern suburbs of the city on Thursday. At least one soldier was injured in the attack that occurred in Saiddiya. APTN saw a destroyed humvee and debris from the blasts strewn across the road where the attack occurred. Meanwhile, in Baquba, an angry crowd gathered on Thursday after the US military raided a house overnight in the Iraqi town. The house of former Iraqi colonel Abdul Karim was stormed an searched in the early hours of Wednesday after a US tank smashed the front gates and a raiding party of US soldiers charged in, according to neighbours. The only people in the house at the time were the colonel's wife and five daughters.

The morning blast occurred during the rush-hour in Palestine Street, a Sunni-Shiite neighbourhood. The injured were taken to nearby al-Kindi Hospital to receive treatment. Meanwhile some Iraqi residents claimed that US and Iraqi forces staged raids in Baghdad's mostly Shiite neighbourhood of al-Shaab early on Thursday as part of the major security crackdown in the capital. There was no official comment from either the US or Iraqi troops on the raids. The troops allegedly raided the Shiite al-Shurofi mosque and two governmental facilities in the district; the al-Rafidain Bank and the Water Pumping Station with the aim of searching for illegal weapons and suspects. The joint US-Iraqi troops have, from time to time, launched raids into areas loyal to radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr with the aim of chasing militant factions and sectarian death squads that have ruled Baghdad's streets. Bullets, belongings and furniture was seen scattered on the grounds of the three locations. Sheikh Khudier, the Imam of the al-Shurofi Mosque, said furniture and offices were damaged in the raids. US President George W. Bush recently announced plans to send a further 21,500 US soldiers, most of them to Baghdad, to try to quell the insurgency. The last of the US military units earmarked for Iraq are not due in Iraqi capital until May.

Various of injured people 16. Ambulance driving out of hospital STORYLINE: At least eight people were killed and 21 wounded after bombs hidden in plastic bags near a falafel stand exploded at a market in a mainly Shiite area in Baghdad on Sunday, Iraqi officials said. It was the latest in a series of bombings targeting Shiites and minorities in the capital and northern Iraq. The bags packed with explosives were left among a pile of rubbish and exploded shortly before 8 p.m. on Sunday (1700 GMT Sunday) as the district was crowded with people enjoying the evening. Several nearby stores were also damaged, according to police and hospital officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorised to release the information. Five children were among the wounded, they said. The injured people were taken to Ibn al-Nafis hospital for treatment. On Monday, broken glass littered the ground where one of the explosions occurred in Baghdad's al-Jidida neighbourhood Outside another cafe, broken furniture and bloodstains soiled the ground from the explosions. Medics on Monday were treating the wounded at Ibn al-Nafis Teaching Hospital in Baghdad's Karrada neighbourhood. The spike in violence follows the June 30 withdrawal of American troops from urban areas, heightening concerns about the ability of Iraqi forces to protect the people. Political tensions have also risen further as the country prepares for national elections scheduled for January. Violence has fluctuated throughout the year, but the intense period of bombings in recent days has indicated a more sustained effort, with nearly 160 people killed in blasts since August 7. Mindful of the fears, the Iraqi government announced on Sunday that it had indefinitely postponed a nationwide census after warnings that it could stoke ethnic and political tension.

A safer Baghdad for Iraqi Zayd Abd Oun means he can practice his favorite activity of flying radio-controlled airplanes. Oun, a 35 year old chemistry graduate has been a fan of RC airplanes since he was a child in the 1980s. He has flown RC airplanes since joining the Firnas Aero Club located in the Diyala province in 1994. His passion for the sport pushed him to take up studies in aerodynamics and electronics. But after the U.S. led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the sectarian violence of 2006 and 2007, Oun and his colleagues were forced to abandon their hobby for several years. "We practised the hobby of flying planes in Al-Abed track, at Firnas airport in Diyala and Khan Bani Saad and we continued to do so until the fall of the regime. After the fall of the regime, everything changed. The club was looted, the airport was taken from us and the furniture and the equipment of the club's headquarters were ransacked too," says Oun. The club and the airport were soon transformed into a U.S. military base until October 2011 when it was handed over to the Iraqis. During that time Oun and his colleagues were deprived of the only venue to practice their sport. "We managed to refurbish the Firnas club and reopen it and we started to bring together its staff because besides the RC models the Firnas club has teams of parachutists and gliders," added Oun. The club currently boasts two runways airplane hangars and several workshops, and is working on increasing its member intake. "The team numbered approximately 15 members before the fall of the regime. I started to bring them together again. Some of them travelled overseas, others abandoned the hobby altogether while some of them immigrated with their families. Only six members remained and the number has increased to 10," Oun says. Oun says there are many new fans that come to Jadiriya every Friday to see the planes in action. Oun prefers to put his skills to use and build his own model. He estimates that a handmade plane costs $700 whereas an imported kit can start at $1000. Akram al-Sheikhli, an engineer who has been practicing the sport for 20 years, says flying RC planes needs financial support to improve its standards, and such financial limitations means only two members of the team will take part in an international competition in Saudi Arabia in March.

A car suicide bomber killed 14 people and injured 43 outside the Interior Ministry in central Baghdad, police said. The bomber slammed into a police checkpoint outside the Interior Ministry at midmorning, when traffic is usually heavy. The blast could be heard two kilometres (more than one mile) away and smoke could be seen rising from the scene. The blast killed 14 people, including eight policemen, police said, adding that 17 policemen were among the wounded. The injured were brought by ambulance to al-Kindi Teaching Hospital for treatment. In another incident, a roadside bomb went off on Monday morning next to a police patrol in Park al-Sadoun neighbourhood in central Baghdad, injuring the driver of a civilian car which was driving by. The car was set ablaze. Meanwhile, daylight on Monday revealed the horrible aftermath of an attack on Sunday night on an open-air market in Khalis. A group of assailants in three cars had raked the open-air night market with gunfire on Sunday night, killing 23 people and wounding 25 others, hospital sources and police said. The gunmen fired indiscriminately at throngs of people at the main market of Khalis, a mostly Shiite town 50 miles (80 kilometres) north of Baghdad, Diyala provincial police said. Damaged furniture of the caf� where the assailants attacked people was obvious and bloodstain spattered the scene. Grieving relatives of victims flocked to Baqouba hospital to take their loved ones for burial. In Kirkuk, north of Baghdad, the damage caused by Sunday's suicide bombing that killed at least nine people and injured 22 others was still evident on Monday. There were two back-to-back suicide car bombings in the northern city of Kirkuk, one of which targeted the house of a cousin of Iraq's president, police said. Ten minutes later, another car bomb exploded outside the home of Colonel Ahmed Hamawendi, a commander of a local police station.

Doe-eyed and adorable Kheer Allah lives with his mother, father, two brothers and sister. Their "home" has no furniture and no modern appliances, except for an old television and radio sitting precariously atop a stack of used tires. There's no meat on this family's table. Home-baked pita bread is the staple in this beyond-poor household. School is out of the question too. Young Kheer Allah must work every day to help his family survive. Boy of Baghdad is the heartbreaking, and very real, story of a remarkable boy forced to grow up much too quickly, in a dangerous world gone mad with politics and fanaticism. One that has sadly ignored its most vulnerable citizens, its children.

From kinky furniture to ancient batteries here are rare historic things you won't believe existed! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #4 The Baghdad Battery In 1938, German archaeologist Wilhelm Konigwhile was on a dig just outside Baghdad in modern day Iraq when he found a five-inch-long clay jar containing a copper cylinder that encased an iron rod. The vessel had clear signs of corrosion. Testing revealed that an acidic agent like vinegar or wine had been inside the cylinder and the rod. The battery-like item has been dated to around 200 B.C., which is known as the Parthian era. The Parthians were a warrior society not noted for scientific achievement. Replicas of the Baghdad batteries can conduct electricity. Some experts think that the early Iraqis were using wine, vinegar, lemon or grape juice as an acidic electrolyte solution that could generate an electric current of about two volts. Whether these artifacts are truly batteries and what they were used for is still up for debate. #3 The Nebra Sky Disc The Nebra Sky Disc is such a spectacular representation of the universe that archeologists were once convinced it had to be a forgery. The Bronze age artifact was discovered in 1999 near the Ziegelroda Forest in Germany by two men who were exploring the forest with metal detectors. They sold the Sky Disc on the black market, where it was traded several times, gaining stature with each purchase. When archeologists finally got a good look at the Disc after a police sting, they were stunned by the Disc's beauty and size. They suspected it was a fake, since Bronze age people were believed to have been violent and brutal, with no understanding of the world around them. The Disc caused them to rethink their beliefs about the sophistication of ancient peoples. The huge disc is one foot across and weighs almost five pounds. The body is made of bronze, with several symbols made of gold. The symbols appear to be a sun, moon and several stars. The angles show the precise journey of the sun between summer and winter for the latitude in Nebra. This shows that Bronze age Europeans were aware of the movement of the stars and how it impacted their world. The Nebra Sky Disc is considered one of the greatest discoveries of the 20th century. #2 The James Ossuary The James Ossuary is a mysterious limestone bone box that bears an Aramaic inscription reading “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus.” Its discovery in 2002 shocked the world, but archeologists cannot agree on whether the box is real or fake. If the James Ossuary does contain the bones of James, brother of Jesus, it will be the oldest recorded reference to Jesus Christ. The Ossuary dates from the time period around Jesus' birth and death, as it is believed to have been made sometime between 0 and 70 A.D. First century Jewish people commonly collected the bones of a dead person and placed them inside an ossuary. Two paleographers, who are experts in dating and authenticating inscriptions, have examined the Ossuary and concluded the inscription is authentic. Other evidence suggests the Ossuary is the burial box of James the Just. Professor Camil Fuchs analyzed the box and concluded that of the thousands of ossuaries that have been found, only one refers to a brother. Naming a brother or son was only done when the person who is referred to has achieved great fame or importance. Professor Fuchs also studied the frequency of names in the first century, reporting that statistically there was only 1 person named James with a brother named Jesus and a father named Joseph living in Jerusalem at the time. #1 Antikythera Mechanism The ancient Greek machine known as the Antikythera Mechanism is said to be more valuable to human history than the Mona Lisa. That's because the mechanism turned out to be the world's first analog computer. The Antikythera Mechanism was discovered in 1900 by divers who were exploring a shipwreck off of a Greek island. The machine, which was discovered inside a wooden box, resembles a large clock. It contains 233 teeth and multiple moving gears and 80 fragmented pieces. The amazing machine was carbon-dated to around 150 to 100 B.C. Archeologists believe that the mechanism actually relies on early Babylonian astronomical theories and calculations, meaning that the knowledge it represents dates from far earlier than 150 B.C. This technology appears to have been lost to human knowledge, since it would be thousands of years before a machine of such complexity would appear again. Scientists are amazed by the complexity and accuracy of the Antikythera Mechanism's measurements. By winding a knob on the side of the mechanism, the machine can show the positions of the sun, moon and specific stars and planets on any specific date and time. The device could replicate the movements of the moon caused by its elliptical orbit around the earth. It could also predict the dates of solar and lunar eclipses.

The morning blast occurred during the rush-hour in Palestine Street, a Sunni-Shiite neighbourhood. The injured were taken to nearby al-Kindi Hospital to receive treatment. Meanwhile some Iraqi residents claimed that US and Iraqi forces staged raids in Baghdad's mostly Shiite neighbourhood of al-Shaab early on Thursday as part of the major security crackdown in the capital. There was no official comment from either the US or Iraqi troops on the raids. The troops allegedly raided the Shiite al-Shurofi mosque and two governmental facilities in the district; the al-Rafidain Bank and the Water Pumping Station with the aim of searching for illegal weapons and suspects.

SHOTLIST : 1. Various exteriors of National Library 2. Interiors of library, shelves of books 3. Document waiting for restoration 4. Various set ups of head of library Saad Eskander 5. SOUNDBITE (English) Saad Eskander, Head of Iraqi National Library : "I think hundreds of bombs have exploded just in this area. Even though, we have worked every day except for a few days except, for example, last year we were not able to work only for about twenty days." 6. People working in library office 7. Various of people working in archive 8. SOUNDBITE (English) Saad Eskander, Head of Iraqi National Library : "We needed to adapt to this unusual situation by adopting several measures, for example, I hired a lot of guards to protect my staff, to protect our collections. I tried to purchase the equipment that the guard needed. So, I went to the black markets and purchased guns, ammunitions so that we would be self sufficient in terms of security. Here in Baghdad you cannot rely on the police, you cannot rely on the National Guards to protect you." 9. Zoom in of damage to library 10. SOUNDBITE (English) Saad Eskander, Head of Iraqi National Library : "In many official meetings I rejected any idea to destroy any books of Saddam (Hussein) or the Baath party. They have historical values. But you can remove the extra copies, unnecessary copies. These are important for our scholars, for Western students to study them to understand a long period, a long, black period of our history." 11. Sign reading (in Arabic) "Paper (Document) Restoration Hall" 12. Various of equipment in Paper (Document) Restoration Hall 13. Exterior of National Library LEAD IN : Despite regular bombings, kidnappings and death threats the Iraqi National Library is still open to the people of the capital Baghdad. And, for the first time since 2003, the library is now fully accessible to the public. STORYLINE: The Iraqi National Library was badly damaged in the past four years since the former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was overthrown by coalition and US forces. But recently the structure of the three-story building has been restored, new furniture replaced what was looted after the invasion, a new IT department has been set up and some 100 young university graduates have been hired to inject new blood into the organisation. The library also has a document and book restoration facility. All this has taken place in the three years since Saad Eskander took over Iraq's National Library. Since then the British-educated Kurd has had to undo the work of looters and arsonists, play detective, advise his employees on security, fight red tape and talk up his library to potential donors. Eskander says despite everything the library has stayed open during the months and years of conflict. The library is located in one of the city's most dangerous spots, caught between three Sunni insurgent strongholds in a part of Baghdad that's notorious for sectarian kidnappings and killings. Hardly a week goes by without one or more of Eskander's 450-strong staff or members of their immediate families receiving a death threat, being kidnapped, killed or wounded. Beside the five employees who have so far been killed, workers have lost nearly 70 close relatives, suffered two kidnappings and received 58 death threats. A total of 51 fled their homes as part of the sectarian cleansing taking place in Baghdad. For the first time since 2003, the library is now fully accessible to the public. Eskander says because of this he has taken the security of his staff upon himself hiring security guards and accessing guns and ammunition. The area's tenuous security impacts on the number of readers who use the library. Eskander says a bad day could mean a single reader or none at all.

Wide of blast scene STORYLINE: A parked minivan packed with explosives exploded in a busy outdoor market in an impoverished Shiite area in Baghdad on Tuesday, killing four people and wounding 16, police said. The explosion occurred as people were shopping in Jamila market in the rundown district of Sadr City, in eastern Baghdad. Firemen arrived at the scene to be confronted by dozens of vehicles and stalls on fire. Those injured in the blast were taken to al-Kindi hospital for treatment. Meanwhile, two people have been killed and at least 18 injured after a bomb exploded in central Baghdad on Tuesday. The device went off at 10 a.m. (0600GMT) in the main Tahrir Square, a busy commercial area that has been targeted by bombers several times over the past few months. Those seriously injured were taken to the local hospital, others with minor injuries were treated and discharged. Violence also escalated in Basra on Tuesday morning when a suicide bomber blew himself up outside a care home for the elderly, killing one other person and injuring at least three. One eyewitness said, "A suicide bomber blew himself up in the middle of crowd of people. Thanks to God, there were not many casualties." Police are investigating the motive for the attack which happened just weeks after the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki declared a state of emergency in Basra after an upsurge in violence.

(10 Aug 2016) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 4049849 A fire ripped through a maternity ward at a Baghdad hospital overnight on Tuesday, killing 12 premature babies. Government officials said the initial investigations indicated it was an electrical fire. Baghdad authorities initially sealed off the hospital but later allowed some media into the site. At the maternity ward, forensic teams in masks and protective gloves were seen searching through the rubble and charred pieces of furniture. A yellow tape stretched across the ward entrance, preventing reporters from getting closer. Iraqi Health Ministry advisor Dr. Amir al-Mukhtar said the fire took hold quickly and created a lot of damage. He said eight babies were saved and taken to other hospitals in the area. Grief-stricken families continued to search for their missing newborns in vain on Wednesday while angry relatives gathered outside the Yarmouk hospital in western Baghdad. Electrical fires are common in the Iraqi capital and elsewhere across the country because of shoddy maintenance and poor wiring.
