Maliki finally quits as Iraqi Prime Minister

Country still has challenges to grapple with despite resignation of premier critics say is divisive.

    Incument Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki has resigned.

    Maliki was accused of favouring the Shia majority during his time in office, and his resignation offers new hope of an end to political deadlock.

    But the Iraqi government still faces many threats, foremost among them is the Islamic State group, which is expanding in the country's west.
