Sadr followers hold mass prayer outside Iraqi parliament

12/8/2022 18:30
        Thousands of followers of Moqtada al-Sadr held a mass prayer outside parliament in Baghdad on Friday in a show of support for the powerful Shi'ite cleric who has called for Iraq's judiciary to dissolve parliament by the end of next week.
        
        Supporters of the populist leader have occupied the Iraqi parliament since July after a 10-month political stalemate that followed elections last October. Sadr was the biggest winner but failed to form a government free of Iranian-backed parties.
        
        He withdrew his lawmakers from parliament and is now preventing the chamber from electing a new government and is demanding early elections.
        
        On Wednesday he said the judiciary must dissolve parliament by the end of next week.
        
        Outside parliament on Friday thousands of Sadr supporters gathered for prayer. Most were dressed in black to mark the Muslim month of Muharram and some wore white capes symbolising burial shrouds and their willingness to die.
