Iraq, seven years after the invasion

The World

It has been nearly seven years since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Today, as the country awaits results from the March 7 national election, we check in with Iraqis about the state of their country.

We speak with Lubna Naji, a 24-year-old medical student at Baghdad Medical School, and with Waria Salihi, president of the Salihi Group, a company involved in Iraqi reconstruction. We also speak with British journalist and author Adel Darwish.
