Iraq comedy show under fire

Actors plant fake bombs in celebrities' cars and record their reactions candid-camera style.

    A new Iraqi comedy show has come under criticism for making jokes about the dangerous reality of life in the country.

    The show, "Put him in Bucca", features fake bombs being planted in celebrities' cars, and candid camera-style recording of their reactions.
