It has been 20 years since the start of the Iraq War.

In March 2003, the United States launched its invasion, dropping bombs on Iraq's capital Baghdad.

For Iraqis it marked the beginning of three weeks of helplessness as the US and its allies overwhelmed Saddam Hussein's forces.

In this programme, first broadcast in 2012, Robin Lustig speaks to Lubna Naji who was a schoolgirl in Baghdad when the war broke out.
