    A new Shia alliance in Iraq has been formed which excludes prime minister Nouri al-Maliki's Dawa Party.

    Al-Maliki could be fighting for his political survival as the coalition sets about tackling insecurity following a recent rise in violent attacks, including a huge explosion in Baghdad last week that killed more than 100 people.
