Iraqi parliament fails to elect a new speaker

The Iraqi parliament failed to elect a new speaker yesterday, postponing the opportunity to form a new government.

The Obama administration is still urging Iraqi leaders to overcome sectarian divides, and to quickly create a more politically inclusive regime.

Escalating violence has led to an estimated 2,417 Iraqis killed in June, as ISIS insurgents continue to overrun many cities and regions within the country.
