The Jihadist Contagion: Sunni Radicals in Iraq and Syria (part 2)

When Osama Bin Laden was killed in 2011, Al Qaeda seemed a weakened force. But after Syria, are we witnessing a resurgence of Sunni radicals in neighbouring Iraq? The daily bombings in Baghdad are at their deadliest since 2007, added to which there's also what looks like a throwback to 2004 after the fall of Saddam Hussein. A mix of Sunni tribesmen and Al Qaeda-linked radicals are in control of the strategic city of Fallujah. What’s next for Iraq?

Produced and prepared by Yann Pusztai, Diaraye Bah and Haxie Meyers-Belkin
