Displaced Iraqis struggle to find shelter

Activists helping those forced out of their homes by war against ISIL say they are still waiting for tents and trailers.

    The fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group has displaced thousands of people from their homes in Iraq.

    Many fled flashpoint areas in the country to safer neighbourhood in the Iraqi capital.

    Local activists attending to the needs of displaced people in Baghdad say they are still waiting for tents and trailers the government promised to deliver.

    As winter becomes harsher, they fear many newly arrived families may find no warm shelter.
