Abandoned tobacco factory to turn into an arts center in Iraq

For 13 years, a tobacco factory in Sulayminyah, Iraq, lay abandoned.

There was talk of re-opening it. Then talk of demolishing it.

But now, there are plans to transform the 26-hectare compound into a place where people can enjoy the arts.

Al Jazeera’s Natasha Ghoneim reports from Sulaymaniyah in northern Iraq.
