Particulars:
Dashes above vowels as diactritic marks are not correctly shown, they are poorly replaced by accent acute. Points under consonants are not placed at all.
The territorial division of Iraq is subjected to constant changes.
In the used sources there is some discrepancy between the figures of the surface areas.
The articles "Al", "An", "As" and "At" have influenced the alphabetical order of the names, although the meaning of the word could have been ignored.
