The number of babies born with severe deformities and children developing leukaemia is rising dramatically in parts of Iraq.

US forces used depleted uranium weapons to attack the city, which locals say has left them with this devastating legacy.

One report even says the number of such illnesses in Falluja is higher than that recorded after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

See some of the deformed and desperately ill children, and meets some of the people battling against the odds to rebuild their lives, and their city.

HOW TO HELP:
