Iraqi PM refuses resignation of Sunni ministers
Iraq's embattled prime minister has refused to accept the resignation of six Sunni members of his cabinet, a senior official said Sunday, amid a deepening crisis inside his ruling coalition.

On Wednesday, Iraq's main Sunni political bloc the National Concord Front said it was pulling its five ministers and deputy prime minister out of the coalition, dealing a blow to its claims to represent all Iraqis.

But on Sunday, an official in Prime Minister Nuri Al Maliki's office told AFP that the Shiite leader had refused to endorse the resignations, leaving open the door for a compromise deal after high-level talks.
