Al-Sadr to be Arrested?

The Guardian reports that the Coalition and the Iraqi Governing Council are preparing to arrest Muqtada al-Sadr. This is because of the murder of a rival cleric in the Shrine of Ali, which is where the "Najaf bombing" took place, in which the highly respected Baqir al-Hakim was killed. I wrote about the bombings at the time, and you can see the reports: here and here.

Hat tip: the Agonist.
