Growing slums and misery in Iraq's Sadr City

The city was the launchpad for attacks against US forces after their invasion in 2003.

    Sadr City was previously known as Revolution City, but today it is one of the poorest and most neglected districts in the Iraqi capital.

    Nearly half of Baghdad's eight million people live there. Most of them are Shia Muslims, and they blame politicians for failing to improve their lives.

    Al Jazeera's Dorsa Jabbari reports.
