Hundreds of Sadrist protesters stormed Iraq's Judicial Council building this morning and set out tents to organize a sit-in. They stormed the parliament building last month and held a sit-in there as well.

Muhammad Salih al-Iraqi — who closely follows Muqtada al-Sadr on Twitter and whose tweets express official Sadrist positions — welcomed the move against the Judiciary, accusing it of being biased against Sadrists.
