When will the killing stop? I don't believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I wish I shared the President's Optimisim.
Iraq Sunni leader's brother shot
Breaking news graphic
Gunmen in police uniforms have killed the brother of Iraqi Vice-President Tariq al-Hashimi in Baghdad.
Amer al-Hashimi, a major general in the Iraqi army, was at home in the Sulaikh district when the gunmen stormed into the house and shot him dead.
They arrived in 10 police cars, a police source said.
Tariq al-Hashimi's Iraqi Islamic Party is the largest Sunni Muslim bloc in parliament. Earlier this year another brother and his sister were murdered.
