Sadr postpones anti-US 'million-strong march'
Iraqi Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr announced in a statement on Tuesday he was indefinitely postponing mass anti-U.S. demonstrations planned for the following day because of fear his supporters would be attacked.

The "million-strong march" was scheduled to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the fall of Baghdad and had raised the prospect of mass action or unrest coinciding with testimony in Congress by the top U.S. officials in Iraq.
