After 15 Years, Baghdad's Green Zone Begins To Reopen
The Iraqi government began to reopen the heavily-fortified area of Baghdad that's been closed since the U.S. invasion.
More than 15 years after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, parts of a heavily-fortified area of the capital city reopened to the public.
On Monday, the Iraqi government partially reopened Baghdad's so-called Green Zone, according to the office of Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi. Monday also marked the one year anniversary of Iraq declaring victory over ISIS.
The United States established the Green Zone in 2003. It houses embassies, Iraqi government offices, multinational companies and some residences.
The area will reportedly gradually reopen to the public over the next two weeks.
