BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Calling for democracy and freedom in the midst of insurgent attacks, the leaders of Iraq's interim government Wednesday challenged the country's new National Assembly to strive for "national unity."
The 275-member assembly was sworn in as about half a dozen explosions rattled the area around the convention center where members met.
The U.S. military said it was investigating the explosions.
"Freedom and democracy are great goals we should achieve," interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi told the gathering. "We have great duties to face and stand up to."
President Bush congratulated the people of Iraq as the country's transitional national assembly met Wednesday.
"It was a hopeful moment, I thought," Bush told reporters at a news conference at the White House.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
