City Without Hope –

Three weeks on, many in Baghdad feel angry, hopeless

With no law and no government, the people of Baghdad feel alone, afraid and angry.


Three weeks after Saddam Hussein’s overthrow, many parts of the capital still have no water or electricity, there are floods of sewage and only a trickle of convoys have made it through with urgently needed food and medical supplies.


American civilian administrator for Iraq Jay Garner told reporters on Wednesday that the situation was improving every day and that power had been restored to about half of the city. Reuters
