Shia cleric Moqtada Sadr's bloc wins Iraq elections

A leading Anti-US cleric's party has won the largest number of seats in Iraq's recent election. Even more of a surprise to me is that a pro-Iranian party won the second most seats. The current PM's party was third.

However, no block has anywhere near enough seats to form a government so the coalition negotiations begin.

Looks like not enough hearts and minds have been won over.
