Baghdad (AFP) - Secular Iraqis woke up feeling hungover on Sunday, after a surprise parliament vote they claim is unconstitutional and shows that dominant religious parties have their priorities wrong.

An article banning the sale, import and production of alcohol was slipped into a draft on municipalities and caught the anti-ban camp flat-footed on Saturday.

The scores of small alcohol shops in central Baghdad were already closed because of the holy Muslim month of Muharram, and now their owners and employees are fuming.

"We don't have another job -- our families will lose their income," said Maytham, who owns a shop selling all kinds of locally produced and imported beers, wines and spirits in Baghdad's central Karrada district.

Some of the best people I ever met over there were the owners of the beer shops. I really hate to hear this.
