IRAQI WOMAN HOLDS HER SICK CHILD IN HOSPITAL IN BASRA.
An Iraqi woman holds her child suffering from serious dehydration, in
the al Tahrir hospital in Basra May 7, 2003. Local hospitals reported
at least 17 cases of cholera but the World Health Organisation warns
than hundreds more are possible in the southern city of Basra which
faces problems with water supply and sewage disposal after the
infrastructure was damaged or looted during the chaotic fall of the
regime of Saddam Hussein. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj
