Iraq's top Sunni Arab political leader Sunday accused Shiite-dominated security forces of pursuing a strategy of sectarian "cleansing" in Baghdad, saying the country will slip into "turmoil" if crackdowns don't end. Iraq's ceaseless violence killed at least 13 people Sunday, including nine Iraqi policemen and soldiers, as the trial resumed of Saddam Hussein and seven co-defendants on accusations of involvement in the killings of more than 140 Shiite Muslims. Adnan al-Dulaimi, leader of the Iraq Accordance Front, also indicated that he would oppose the vital interior and defense ministries being awarded to Shiites. "We believe that the posts of the interior and defense ministers should be kept away from any sectarian and political considerations," al-Dulaimi told reporters during a press conference in Baghdad.
