Iraq’s Sunni Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jubouri speaks during a press conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, in Baghdad, Iraq, Saturday, July 26, 2014. Gunmen traveling in black SUVs seized Riyadh al-Adhdah, a senior Sunni politician who had previously been jailed on terrorism charges from his home in Baghdad on Saturday, police officers said. Al-Maliki discussed al-Adhdah’s disappearance with al-Jabouri, at a meeting Saturday. The incident comes at a time of mounting sectarian tensions, with Sunni militants having seized vast swaths of northern and western Iraq and Shiite militias having mobilized to help the beleaguered armed forces fight back.
