Sadr fears for life in security crackdown

Guardian Unlimited Moqtada al-Sadr has moved his family to a secure location because of fears he will become the target of a security sweep of Baghdad, it was reported today.

Just tell him to surrender to the American forces; they will protect him.
News of the radical cleric's decision came as the US military said it had detained a suspected death squad leader.
That is one of Sadr's forces; not a death squad leader looking for Sadr.
Aides to Mr Sadr described the arrest of the man, named as Abdul-Hadi al-Darraji, as a "provocation", saying he was a spokesman for their movement.
Maybe they want to see what the spokesman will say.
"We are angry," Abdul-Mehdi al-Matiri told Reuters. "This is a kind of revenge. Sheikh Darraji deals with the media. He is not a military man."
