Iraqi children run inside an ancient temple in the historic city of
Hatra, 350 km north of Baghdad on December 6,2002. Iraqis visit the
site on the second day of the Moslem Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end
of the holy fasting month of Ramadan. The number of foreign tourists
has dwindled in the past decade as the country reels under harsh U.N.
sanctions which bar most direct flights. REUTERS/Suhaib Salem
