Iraq post-ISIL: Anger over government's 'unfair' compensation

Residents of Fallujah say that government compensation following the destruction caused by the fight against ISIL is not being handed out fairly.

    The Iraqi city of Fallujah in Anbar province is struggling to recover, two years after the Iraqi army defeated the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) fighters.

    Their battle left the city in ruins.

    As well as reconstructing destroyed buildings and creating jobs, the local government is also handing out compensation.

    But some complain the process is unfair.
