Iraq wants Sunni armed factions to fight ISIL

Sunni opposition leaders say they will not take up arms against ISIL unless their demands are met.

    More than two months have passed since the US-led coalition began targeting ISIL in Iraq. There have been some tactical successes but the group has not been defeated.

    The Iraqi government is now trying to persuade Sunni armed factions and tribes to help it fight ISIL but Sunni leaders want greater rights and representation in government.
