Iraqi adverts warn against violence

Government launches media campaign in a bid to improve security and curb attacks.

    Iraqi officials are planning to turn Baghdad into a walled city, hoping the medieval style fortification could improve security in the capital once and for all.

    But in the meantime, a more subtle attempt to improve security is making inroads, as new advertisements against violence crop up on television screens and billboards around the city.

    As Al Jazeera's Rawya Rageh reports, the advertisements are part of a stepped-up and widespread campaign to curb violence across the country.
