Iraqi premier Nuri al-Maliki warned rivals against exploiting a Sunni militant onslaught for political gain and insisted that any new government must be based on an election he won.

His remarks came as US military advisers began meeting with Iraqi commanders combatting an offensive that has overrun swathes of five provinces, killed nearly 1,100 people, displaced hundreds of thousands and threatens to tear the country apart.

And while security forces continued to repel assaults on critical towns and infrastructure, fighters from Al-Qaeda's Syrian franchise, Al-Nusra Front, made a local alliance with the jihadist group leading the charge in Iraq, bolstering its offensive.
