Iraq marks decade since fall of Baghdad

Ten years after Saddam Hussein's regime was toppled, Iraq is still not as stable as many would like.

    It has been 10 years since a statue of Saddam Hussein was pulled down in Baghdad in the days after a US-led invasion stormed the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.

    The toppling of the bronze statue is regarded as symbolising the end of Saddam's 24-year reign.

    Today's Iraq is immensely more free than it was under the former dictator, but not as free as many Iraqis would like.

    Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf reports from Baghdad.
