Heatwave to Peak on Thursday

By John Lee.

The lastest phase of the Iraqi heatwave is expected to peak on Thursday.

Forecasters are expecting highs of 51 degrees Celsius in most southern cities, and 49 degrees in Baghdad.

They are also expecting higher-than-usual humidity.

The Iraqi government recently introduced a policy of declaring public holidays when temperatures exceed 50 degrees.
