Water sports on the rise in Baghdad

Despite the dangerous reality still present, many are taking to the Tigris river for fun.

The Iraqi capital Baghdad has often been associated with explosions and violence in recent years.

But as Al Jazeera’s Rawya Rageh reports from Baghdad, the Tigris is now becoming popular with water-sport enthusiasts.
