Sunnis and radical Shias enter Iraq poll
By Oliver Poole in Baghdad
Two groups at the forefront of the violent resistance to the American presence in Iraq - the country's Sunni community and followers of Moqtada al-Sadr, the radical Shia cleric - yesterday put forward candidates for December's national election.
The move is a notable success for the US, which has been trying to draw both factions into the political process after they officially boycotted January's vote."
