(February 1998) Nine year old Haiman Sabri being examined by a pediatrician , doctor Yaser Raouf, with his mother bedside at the Saddam hospital in Baghdad. <br />
According to his doctor Haiman had a curable infection, but due to lack of anti biotics suffered life threatening complications.  <br />
Due to UN sanctions the hospital was lacking many medicines, and the civilians suffered due to lack of food as well. <br />
 Former U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq Denis Halliday estimated the resulting deaths : "Two hundred thirty-nine thousand children 5 years old and under" as of 1998.<br />
<br />
The sanctions against Iraq were a near-total financial and trade embargo imposed by the United Nations Security Council on the Iraqi Republic.<br />
