And, from Baghdad...
Salam Pax, the 'Baghdad Blogger' has given an interview to the BBC and has made several short films about life in Baghdad now which are showing on BBC's "Newsnight" program. He says,
"Basically, we're not safe in our own city. This is where I live, this is where I want to go out with friends and family and we can't do that anymore because it's not safe. It's full of explosions and bombs and tanks on the street.

The films are available for viewing online. posted by liz at 8:16 PM
