Things you will not see on the BBC

Najaf's leaders call on al-Sadr to end standoff From The Washington Times

NAJAF, Iraq (AP) — Tribal leaders in the Shi'ite holy city of Najaf yesterday called on an anti-American cleric's militia to end its standoff with U.S. troops.

The statement, signed by 25 tribal leaders, was the first direct call by residents of Najaf for Sheik Muqtada al-Sadr's Mahdi's Army to put down its weapons.

Now I wonder why the BBC doesn't print this?
