Iraq's Sunni tribal leaders assert presence

Leaders say they have put aside differences with the Islamic State group to focus on removing Iraq's government.

    Sunni tribal leaders have been meeting in the capital of the autonomous Kurdish region, Erbil, to pledge their support for the their community's month-long rebellion against the Iraqi government.

    The men said Sunni politicians in parliament do not represent them, and while they have differences with the Islamic State group, they would work to them until they take Baghdad.
