A new Sunni militia with membership over 1000 has formed to protect a neighborhood in Baghdad. The new militia, called “Revolutionaries of Adhamiyah”, is not supportted by the Iraqi government or the US Military.
AFP journalist Christine Buhagier reports, “Adhamiyah’s residents are welcoming these revolutionaries with open arms. But for how long? If the militias that are taking control of Baghdad’s neighborhoods turn on each other there could be more violence ahead.”
