Supporters of the influential Shiite preacher Muqtada al-Sadr followed his order on Tuesday and ended their protest camp at the parliament. TV pictures showed them dismantling their tents.

The UN mission in Iraq welcomed Al-Sadr’s “moderate statement”. “Restraint and calm are necessary for reason to prevail,” she wrote on Twitter. Acting Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kasimi tweeted that al-Sadr’s call to end violence was “the epitome of patriotism.”
