    The mandate for Iraq's parliament has expired - with no new leadership confirmed.

    The country's still waiting for the results of a manual recount of suspect ballots from last month's election.

    That's due to get under way in some regions on Tuesday and will take about two weeks - leaving Iraq in political limbo.
