- Iraq: Muqtada Al-Sadr Returns To Political Scene RFE/RL 15 Apr 2005 -- Radical Shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is back, riding on a wave of Iraqi discontent with foreign troops and the lack of law and order in the country. In a demonstration organized by al-Sadr last week, tens of thousands flocked to Baghdad demanding that U.S. troops leave. The demonstration was the largest since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. Even though al-Sadr officially boycotted recent parliamentary elections, his movement is a strong force outside the elected body. Many also believe that al-Sadr's Al-Mahdi Army did not disarm last October after several months of bloody fighting with U.S. troops.
