    Iraq's sectarian divisions widen

    Iraq's sectarian divisions widen

    Arrest arrest against vice-president compounds crisis caused by demands for Sunni-dominated autonomous areas.

    Months before the US intended to leave Iraq, Sunni Arabs had been raising their complaints: unemployment, marginalisation and arbitrary arrests by the government.

    The political crisis has prompted Sunni-dominated areas to call for their own autonomous region.

    However, the idea of a Sunni-dominated federal region is not welcome to Nouri al-Maliki's Shia-led government and many others.

    Meanwhile, the United states is pushing ahead with a weapons deal with Iraq despite the near breakdown of the coalition government. Reports suggest the the deal is worth nearly $11bn and includes advanced fighter jets and tanks.

    Now the arrest warrant issued against Tariq al-Hashemi, the Sunni vice-president, is adding to Iraq’s religious divisions.

    Al Jazeera’s Omar Al Saleh reports from Baghdad.
