Tension runs high among Iraqi Shiites and Sunnis in the past months as wave of bombing attacks have recently targeted worship places and worshippers of both sects.
Tension is also festering between the government of Nuri Al-Maliki, a Shiite, and Iraqi Sunnis who accuse authorities of marginalizing and targeting their community, including through wrongful detentions and accusations of involvement in terrorism.
