War Update: Facts on Baghdad
NPR's Robert Siegel and NPR's Michele Norris investigate Baghdad and compare it with similar-sized cities in the United States. The city has 5 million people and is very dry in summer, when temperatures climb above 100 degrees. The city has lost much of its ancient architecture but has a modern middle-class section. In good times, it's a great place to tour on foot.
