Iraqi Forces Raid Mosque With Links to Sadrists

QUOTE: Government forces in the southern city of Diwaniya burst into a mosque attended by followers of the rebel Shiite cleric Moktada al-Sadr on Friday, arresting the imam and four worshipers, including another cleric, Iraqi security officials said. The raid on the Imam Ali mosque underscored the bitter, often violent feuding across southern Iraq between those loyal to Mr. Sadr and forces allied with the government of Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki.
