    Saddam Hussein's former palace in Baghdad has been completely renovated, ready to host the Arab League summit in May.

    The palace, which has a history as tumultuous as the country's, has been given a $400m makeover. Many hope the gleaming structure will show that Iraq, too, has been restored to its former glory.

    Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf reports from the Iraqi capital.
