Pediatrician Samira al-Alani examines an anencephalic child in an incubator in a Falluja hospital, 50 km (31 miles) west of Baghdad, August 26, 2013. Alarmed by a rise in congenital anomalies in her city of Falluja, al-Aani launched a petition calling on the World Health Organisation (WHO) to release what she says are data collected more than a year ago on birth defects rates caused by the US-led 2003 war on Iraq for independent analysis.
