Description

(1 Jul 2017) Iraq is in the middle of a heat wave with temperatures regularly rising above 47 degrees Celsius (113 Fahrenheit) during the day.Temperatures soared to more than 40 degrees Celsius in the capital Baghdad on Saturday. Many young boys and men flocked to Tigris River and swimming pools to escape the burning temperatures. Such heatwaves add to the population's hardships as the country suffers from a lack of electricity.Animals are also suffering from such heatwave.Iraqis have endured power shortages for decades as the infrastructure suffered from neglect brought on by wars and UN trade sanctions under former leader Saddam Hussain.Billions of dollars have been spent trying to fix the grid since the 2003 US-led invasion, but many Iraqis, mainly the Baghdadi residents receive an estimated eight to 12 hours of national power per day.You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/you...
