Iraqis brave violence to enjoy daily life

Unprecedented violence levels fail to deter many civilians from carrying out their daily lives in Baghdad.

    Bombings across Iraq, including in the country's capital Baghdad, have killed more people recently than at almost any time in the past five years. The targets have included markets, football fields and other public places. However, the violence has failed to deter many Iraqi civilians from carrying out their daily lives. Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf reports from Baghdad.
