Iraq weapon factories turn peaceful

Factories making cluster bomb components realign production for peaceful purpose.

    In Iraq, dozens of factories which were involved in military industries have realigned their production for peaceful purposes by the orders of the post-invasion US Administrator Paul Bremer.

    What was once a place for making cluster bomb components is now churning out plumbing pipes and gas fittings.

    Al Jazeera's Rawya Rageh reports on the turnaround.
