Iraqi voters angry at corruption ahead of polls
Issued on: Modified:
Iraqis head to the polls on Saturday for parliamentary elections. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is hoping the recent victory against the Islamic State group will help him win a second term.

Instead, politicians are accused of seeking power for self-gain. FRANCE 24’s Simona Foltyn reports from Baghdad.
