Iraqis react to Blair war testimony

Residents of Baghdad feel that the UK inquiry into the Iraq war is a waste of time.



    Many Iraqis have been watching Tony Blair, the former British PM, presenting his testimony over the run-up to the Iraq war in 2003.

    But while many in London may be wondering how Blair could explain his rationale for going to war, reaction in Baghdad was a bit different.

    Residents in the Iraqi capital gathered to watch the inquiry, which many say, after everything they've endured, is just a waste of time.
