Dhafer al-Ani (C), a prominent Sunni Arab lawmaker, speaks during a news conference by members of Sunni political bloc Mutahidoon after the first session of the Iraqi Parliament in Baghdad, July 1, 2014. Sunnis and Kurds walked out of the first session of Iraq's new parliament on Tuesday after Shi'ites failed to name a prime minister to replace Nuri al-Maliki, dimming any prospect of an early national unity government to save Iraq from collapse. Parliament is not likely to meet again for at least a week, leaving Iraq in political limbo and Maliki clinging to power as a caretaker, rejected by Sunnis and Kurds.
