Life in Dawr, Iraq

Alaa Hashim rides a horse through a small funpark in Dawr, Iraq, about 300 yards down the road from the farm where Saddam Hussein was found in a "spider hole." Hashim is a cousin of the Namiq brothers who own the farm and were arrested for housing the ousted Iraqi president. The family has become something like royalty in Dawr for sheltering Saddam, who is still idolized by many.
