Iraq crisis: Parliament swears in new unity government
Iraq's parliament has approved a new government with Sunni and Kurdish deputy prime ministers, as it seeks to tackle Islamic State (IS) militants who have seized large parts of the country.
Saleh al-Mutlak and Hoshyar Zebari were approved under a power-sharing deal after weeks of political deadlock.
The BBC's Jim Muir says that Sunnis will be keen to see that they are empowered by the new administration.
