Iraqi Shiite: No interference from Iran: “-Hakim, a key ally of Iran, also lamented the 73 deaths in fighting Monday between Iraqi government forces and Shiite militiamen of firebrand cleric Muqtada al-Sadr’s Mahdi Army, calling the clashes in the southern city of Diwaniyah ‘annoying and painful.’
Minority Sunni Arabs have been urging the Shiite-led government to crack down on Shiite militias, blamed for rampant violence against Sunnis in Baghdad and elsewhere.”
