Watch part two
Deadly attacks have increased in some parts of Iraq since national forces took charge of security following the US troop pullback from Iraqi cities in June. A massive bombing at Iraqi ministry offices in Baghdad killed 100 people a few weeks ago, shaking the credibility of Nuri al-Maliki, the Iraqi prime minister. Some of his main allies in parliament have deserted him, leaving his party vulnerable ahead of elections scheduled for January. Violence also remains very high in Mosul, which remains an urban battleground for Sunni extremist groups.
