UN urges credible Iraqi election


United Nations envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has said it is "terribly important" for Iraq to have elections but they must be "reasonably credible".
Mr Brahimi has been in Iraq to discuss the feasibility of early elections and the ways the UN could help.

Iraq's top Shia cleric wants the poll to take place before 30 June when the US-led coalition plans to hand over power to an Iraqi authority.

Mr Brahimi did not specify when he thought an election could be held.
