Iraqi refugees flee Syrian conflict to return home

During the height of Iraq's civil war, neighbouring Syria was a sanctuary for Iraqis but as the Syrian conflict has intensified Iraqi refugees have again been forced to flee, back to their homeland.

Tens of thousands of Iraqi families have made the journey back to a country that is still not safe. Dozens of civilians have died in bomb attacks this week alone.

Caroline Hawley reports from Baghdad.
