Middle East;Mar2005, Issue 354, p7
This article presents information related to eventful times in the Middle East.

In Iraq, against huge international scepticism, democratic elections have successfully taken place and, as The Middle East went to press, the finer points of a workable coalition government were being thrashed out.
