Al-Amil neighborhood is considered one of Iraq's most volatile areas, Mosul, Iraq, June 10, 2010. Newly elected member of parliament Bashar Mohammed Hamid was killed there while holding a meeting at his office on May 24, 2010. Hamid was aligned with Ayad Allawi's secular Iraqiya coalition. Recent assassinations and attempted assassinations of politicians have caused some people to call for police protection in one of Iraq's most violent cities.
