New toll: 30 al-Sadr supporters killed in Baghdad clashes

Thirty supporters of Iraqi Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr have been shot dead in nearly 24 hours of fighting between rival Iraqi forces that has since died down, according to the latest toll from medics.
At least 570 others were injured in the violence that erupted in Baghdad's Green Zone, pitting al-Sadr loyalists against Shia factions backed by neighbouring Iran. Fighting ended on Tuesday after al-Sadr ordered his supporters to withdraw.
