Video: Rift appears among Iraq Shia

Iraqi prime minister faces possibility of vote of no-confidence.




    A new Shia alliance in Iraq has been formed which excludes the Dawa party of Nuri al-Maliki, the country's prime minister.

    Al-Maliki could be fighting for his political survival as the coalition sets about tackling insecurity following a recent rise in violent attacks, including explosions in Baghdad last week that killed more than 95 people.
