Ten months after the occupation of Iraq in April 2003, the electricity service has still not been fully restored.
The Iraqi capital, Baghdad, still suffers irregular electricity flow. Each district in the capital has to live without electricity for at least six hours a day.
The situation is in stark contrast with what happened after the 1991 Gulf War which left the main Iraqi electrical power stations in ruins.
It took the then Iraqi government three months to restore electricity to its pre-war level.
