Al Jazeera gains exclusive access to base of Kataib Hezbollah, which has been accused of attacking US forces in Iraq and raided by Baghdad government.

On June 25, the Iraqi government carried out a raid on Kataib Hezbollah, a group with close links to Iran that has been accused of attacking United States forces. It was a test for new Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, who has promised to crack down on groups that operate outside the law. But days later, those detained had walked free.
