Women tell of 'charred' babies following Iraq fire

Iraq's health ministry says 12 newborn babies have died in a blaze at a maternity unit in one of Baghdad's biggest hospitals.

Fire fighters took three hours to put out the fire, which broke out late on Tuesday at the Yarmouk hospital in the west of Baghdad.

Two women whose babies died have been talking about what happened.
