Mideast Iraq Museum Woes

In this Wednesday, April 3, 2013 photo, a statue of a woman from the Kingdom of Nimrod from the ninth century B.C. is displayed at the Iraqi National Museum in Baghdad, Iraq. Ten years after Iraqís national museum was looted and smashed by frenzied thieves during the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 to topple Saddam Hussein, itís still far from ready for a public re-opening. Work to overcome decades of neglect and the destruction of war has been hindered by power struggles, poorly-skilled staff and the persistent violence plaguing the country, said Bahaa Mayah, Iraqís most senior antiquities official.(AP Photo/Hadi Mizban)
