Iraq's minister of housing and construction Mohammed al Daraji has announced the completion of a 500 unit housing complex in Najaf, Iraq.
Iraq is currently in the middle of a major drive to build 2 million new housing units, and a number of international construction firms are working on projects within Iraq to meet this ambitious goal. The country faces a major housing crisis, which has seen high property prices in some areas, particularly the Holy city of Karbala.
The new complex comes with a mosque, a shopping mall, a kindergarten and two schools.
