Violence erupts in Iraq, killing at least 30 people

It has been almost seven years since American troops invaded Iraq and overthrew Saddam Hussein. However, bringing order to that country and providing its 29 million people with a true sense of security remains an elusive goal.

With national elections now only days away, today saw three separate suicide bombings, which killed at least 30 people in the the northeastern provincial capital of Baqouba today.

For more on Sunday’s parliamentary elections in Iraq and what they mean for the country’s long-term stability, Daljit Dhaliwal interviews Michael Wahid Hanna, a fellow at the Century Foundation. Hanna discusses the key players in the upcoming elections and the influence of sectarian rivalry on the process.

Anita McNaught of Worldfocus partner Al Jazeera English reports on the violence.
