Iraq sees worst political crisis since Saddam Hussein died

Iraq is experiencing its worst political crisis since the death of former President Saddam Hussein.

The country has not had a leader since November when mass protests forced Adel Abdul Mahdi from office.

The former leader is due to select a new candidate on Tuesday.

But the anti-government movement, which demands radical change, appears to be losing momentum.
