Basra corruption in focus in Iraq vote

Misappropriation of public funds leaves many in Basra without access to clean water and other utilities.

Iraqis in the city of Basra are going without access to safe water due to widespread corruption and mismanagement of public funds.

Many in the oil-rich city live in crippling poverty and have to put with electricity blackouts and poor basic infrastructure.

With elections due to take this week, many candidates are clear about who they hold responsible.
