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.
