Populist cleric Sadr condemns tribal conflicts


Iraqi populist Shiite cleric Muqtada Al Sadr has condemned conflicts between tribes that reap the lives of thousands.

Sadr added on Twitter that such conflicts take place over trifle matters such as running over a dog or a cat.

He also criticized that some tribe chiefs are considered the head, judge and executioner, as they believe their judgement are above the law.

“I wonder when this tribal way of thinking stop being in control of our society and people,” Sadr tweeted.
