The package includes video, still photos and text – a graphic-led maps and data section and an interactive photographic timeline of the conflict.
Seven Reuters journalists have died reporting from Iraq.

Reuters says in the introduction to Bearing Witness: “Through half a decade of war, a team of 100 Reuters correspondents,photographers, cameramen and support staff have strived to bring the world news from the most dangerous country for the press.
“This their testimony – bearing witness to ensure the story of Iraq is not lost.”
