The face of war ten years on
Published: Tue, 19 Mar, 2013
This week marks the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq and one memorable face of the war is Ali Abbas, who now lives in the UK.
An allied raid on his home killed 13 members of his family when he was just 12 and the invasion left him horrifically injured; Ali lost both arms and suffered 60 per cent burns.
His desperate plight touched millions of people and now he is here to share his story as a remarkable young man who has overcome so many odds.
