Baghdad witnesses Bengal tiger baby boom

Revived zoo in Iraqi capital has a baby boom among Bengal tigers including an extremely rare white one.

    Bengal tigers are highly endangered. According to the World Wildlife Fund, there are just 2000 Bengal tigers left in the wild, and about 200 in captivity.
