'The Joy of Others'
Thursday, April 3, 2003; 4:10 PM

While the war has severly affected the economies of Iraq's neighbors, one small community on the Jordanian/Iraqi border has indirectly benefited. For the people of Ruwaishad, the hundreds of journalists camping out in their town have been a new and plentiful source of income.

Interviews with:
Anas Amla, assistant manager of Ruwaishad's only hotel
Halif Hamed Awad, who rented his house to CNN
Samer Mouasher, entrepreneur who set up Baghdad Cafe
