Al-Jazeera Video: Looters target Iraq antiquities

"Iraq's antiquities are facing an old enemy.

Officials say the treasures have been left completely unprotected and exposed to increasingly organised gangs.

That's despite a national and international clamour to protect Iraq's history.

From Baghdad Al Jazeera's Omar Al Saleh reports."
