Pack your sunglasses, swimsuit and don't forget your flak jacket - the new holiday hotspot could be Iraq if the British government has its way.

Sightseeing tours would include the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, dating back to 3,000BC, and marshlands thought to be the location of the Garden of Eden.

But the Foreign Office warns against "all but essential" travel to Iraq.
