Iraq's most senior Shi'ite Muslim cleric urged followers to take up arms against a full-blown Sunni militant insurgency, to topple Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. In a rare intervention at Friday prayers in the holy city of Kerbala, a message from Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, who is the highest religious authority for Shi'ites in Iraq, said, "people should unite to fight back against a lightning advance by militants from the radical Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant."
