Plight of Iraq's sick children

Iraqi hospitals still face chronic shortages of doctors and medicine and children are among those who suffer most.

    Years of violence in Iraq has left a severe shortage of doctors, nurses and the most basic medicines.

    And, as Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf reports, children are often the most vulnerable.
