Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki lashed out at lawmakers in a closed-door session of parliament Sunday, ordering them to stop criticizing his government and instead declare their loyalty to a unified Iraq - not their religious sects or political parties, two members of parliament told The Associated Press. Al-Maliki, who also said a government reshuffle was in the works, was responding to questions by lawmakers during the more-than one-hour closed session. In a statement afterward, al-Maliki's office said he used the meeting to outline the political and security situation in the country and plans for bring stability to the country. It said al-Maliki "called for a comprehensive Cabinet shake up suitable with the current period."
