Motorcycling booms in Baghdad

Many young men take up illegal sport as a hobby, as heavy security measures leave them with little freedom.

    Violence-stricken Baghdad has been dominated by car bombs and massive security measures in the past few months.

    But during the weekend, the streets of Iraq's capital come alive with some ordinary residents living life in the fast lane.

    Motorcycling has become a popular pastime among young men despite being illegal in the city.
