Fractured Baghdad: The Sectarian Divide

Despite the recent US troop surge, neither the Americans nor the Iraqi regime enjoy popular support in Baghdad's sectarian enclaves.

Officials say a struggle for power between sectarian groups is now the main feature of the conflict.

The Americans are confident that their massive security crackdown has begun to reduce that violence - at least in Baghdad.

But a closer look at two sectarian strongholds - Sunni Adhamiya and the Shia suburb of Sadr City - shows few signs that the US army and the Iraqi regime have much popular support.
