Corrected - Iraq's Maliki finally steps aside, paving way for new gov't

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - (Corrects to clarify reference to Iraqi officials, not U.S. administration, in paragraph 12) Nuri al-Maliki finally bowed to pressure within Iraq and beyond on Thursday and stepped down as prime minister, paving the way for a new coalition that world and regional powers hope can quash a Sunni Islamist insurgency that threatens Baghdad. Maliki ended eight years of often divisive, sectarian rule and endorsed fellow Shi'ite Haider al-Abadi in a televised speech during which he stood next to his successor and spoke of the grave threat from Sunni Islamic State militants who have taken over large areas of northern Iraq. #United States #Japan #France #Middle East #Security #Argentina #Entertainment #Mexico
