Two years in Baghdad, Iraq

Al Jazeera meets a two-year-old in Baghdad.

    In November 2006, Al Jazeera began broadcasting in English with a promise to balance the flow of information from South to North.

    Two years on we are looking at the state of the world through the eyes of children.

    How do opportunity, expectation and lifestyle differ from region to region, and country to country?

    We are focusing on Argentina, Gaza, Iraq, Russia and the United Kingdom.

    Here we journey to the home of two-year-old Aws Al Obeidi, who has never been outside the suburb of Baghdad where he was born, or visited the local park because his parents remain worried about the security situation.
