  Ahmed from Iraq fears another war
Updated 12 February 2003, 16.47
Ahammad doesn't want another war
Ahmed has more reasons than most to fear the military action that is looming in Iraq, because his brother was killed during the Gulf War in 1991.

American missiles struck the bomb shelter Ahmed's brother was in, killing him and many other children in the shelter.

He hopes military action doesn't happen.

"Peace is better. Why should all the children die - I hope there will be no war.

"One day I'd like to be a doctor to help the children of Iraq."

At the moment Ahmed is enjoying a few days off school as part of a Muslim holiday, playing games like football on the streets.

But he's also aware that soon he might have to stop playing out with his pals, because the US and Britain are talking about going to war with Iraq.
