Entrepreneurs rush to rebuild New Orleans

Devastated in Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the city is witnessing a sudden influx of entrepreneurs.

    The US city of New Orleans is witnessing an inflow of artists and professionals who are rebuilding the city eight years after Hurricane Katrina destroyed part of it and killed almost 2,000 people.

    The city is now ranked as one of North America's biggest "brain magnets", a trend experts say will change its future.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from New Orleans.
