Iraq Seeks $100 Billion from Donors


Iraq is hoping to raise billions of dollars at a donor conference starting on Monday in Kuwait - to finance the reconstruction after its campaign against ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIS or Daesh).

It is estimated that $100bn is needed for the reconstruction.

Large parts of Iraq's second-largest city, Mosul, are still in ruins, more than six months after it was retaken by the government.
