Residents of a Baghdad district afraid to return  
 

Once considered a bastion of al-Qaeda in Iraq, the Baghdad district of al-Doura is now called "victory neighbourhood", where attacks are rare. But as the US military prepares to withdraw from Iraqi cities, al-Doura remains a maze of cement walls built to enforce security and keep Shia militias out.

As Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdel Hamid reports, former residents say they are hesitant to return until al-Doura becomes the multi-religious district it once was.
