Haider al-Abadi

Iraqi premier-designate Haider al-Abadi speaks at his first press conference since accepting the nomination to be Iraq’s next prime minister, in Baghdad, Iraq, Monday, Aug. 25, 2014. Al-Abadi called on the country’s numerous Shiite militias and tribes to come under government control and stop acting independently on Monday, as violence across the country killed over 40 people in areas where the Muslim sect dominates. Since early this year, Iraq has been facing a growing Sunni insurgency with the Islamic State group and allied Sunni militants who have taken over areas in the country’s west and north.
