FILE - In this Friday, March 26, 2010, file photo, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki speaks to the press in Baghdad, Iraq.

Al-Maliki's political bloc won the most seats in April 30 elections, but he needs support from other blocs to govern with a majority. His efforts to form a coalition have been complicated by the current crisis as critics blame his failure to promote national reconciliation for the Sunni anger fueling the insurgent gains and want him to step down.
