Iraq's largest Sunni Arab political bloc announced its withdrawal from the government Wednesday, undermining Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's efforts to seek reconciliation among the country's rival factions. "The Iraqi Accordance Front announces its withdrawal from the government of Nouri al-Maliki," Rafaa al-Issawi, a leading member of the Front, told reporters in Baghdad. He said the bloc's six Cabinet ministers would submit their resignations later Wednesday.
