Sadr supporters storm Iraq’s Republican Palace

Military reveals Baghdad-wide time limit after cleric’s statement of retired life from national politics

Loads of advocates of effective Iraqi cleric Moqtada Sadr on Monday stormed the Republican Royal residence, a ritualistic structure inside Baghdad’s strengthened Eco-friendly Area of federal government structures, a safety resource claimed.

Angry militants “went into the Republican Royal residence” quickly after Sadr claimed he was giving up national politics, the resource claimed, with a number of thousand various other Sadr patriots heading in the direction of the Eco-friendly Area, an AFP reporter reported.

The military has actually introduced a Baghdad-wide time limit to begin with 3:30 pm (1230 GMT).
