The Iraqi government has said that construction has begun on a cabinet-approved project to build 2,500 houses for the victims of terrorism.
Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlaq said:
"The project, which the industry, housing and construction ministries began last week, is an initial phase and includes Baghdad, Wasit, Babil and Anbar provinces."
The project, to be completed by the end of next year, is valued at 211 billion Iraqi dinar ($181 million)
