Aid agencies say it is still too soon to tell if Saturday's dramatic arrest of Saddam Hussein will pave the way for them to return to Iraq.
A spokesman for Save the Children, which pulled its international staff out of Baghdad after the escalation of violence, said: "It's too early to say whether we become operational again."
However, it is concerned about the risk of injury to children in Iraq from bullets falling from guns fired into the air by Iraqis celebrating Saddam Hussein's capture.
Another issue agencies want to highlight is the discrepancy in Saddam's treatment and prisoners in this country held without charge under the Terrorism Act, as well as those at Guantanamo Bay. Unlike them, Saddam has been granted Prisoner of War status under the Geneva Convention.
