Al Arabiya news channel, which broadcasts out of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, reported this week on how the upcoming Iraqi parliamentary election is playing out.
Just a few years ago, Iraqi women running for parliamentary seats didn’t show their pictures on any campaign signs because of Iraq’s conservatism. But that’s different now.
Al Arabiya also highlights the story of so-called “forgotten Iraqis” — desert Bedouins.
