If they don’t end their siege of the government district within an hour, he will withdraw from his own movement, al-Sadr said in a televised speech on Tuesday. It makes him sad what happened in Iraq. He had hoped for peaceful protests. “I apologize to the Iraqi people,” the Shiite cleric said.

The month-long power struggle between al-Sadr’s movement and his political opponents had previously turned violent. Militias from both sides fought in the heavily secured Green Zone in the center of the capital Baghdad.
