Sadr's aide threatens Allawi of facing 'hell' if elite included in Cabinet


Iraq's incoming prime minister will face "hell" and be removed within days if he includes members of the political elite in his cabinet, a top aide to cleric Moqtada Sadr has warned.

Premier-designate Mohammad Allawi has until March 2 to form a new cabinet, to be put to the protest-rocked country's parliament for a vote of confidence. 

Thousands of anti-government demonstrators have already rejected his nomination as prime minister.
