Iraqi Sunnis protest for sovereign region

During months of protest, Iraqi Sunnis say they want peace, as well as their own piece of Iraq.

    Tens of thousands of Sunni Muslims in Iraq have taken part in anti-government protests to demand the creation of their own federal region.

    The protests have been going on for months, and Sunnis say that they feel that the Shia-led government is treating them unfairly, subjecting them to violence and random arrests.

    However, as Al Jazeera's Omar al-Saleh reports from Erbil,  the organisers of the demonstrations say they want to avoid war.
