Track: As the noose tightened, a spokesman for rebel shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr claimed the government did not want to negotiate - but only wished to kill the cleric and humiliate his followers.

A car bomb exploded as the Environment ministers convoy passed by... She was unharmed - but several bodyguards were killed in the blast.
In a second incident, attackers got the timing wrong - and exploded a roadside bomb alongside the Education ministers convoy - before it had picked him up.
These attacks are not believed to be the work of Al Sadrs followers ....but his militia did throw up road blocks across Sadr City, the slum district that is his powerbase in the capital.

WHEN SHE LEFT UTAH, DOCTORS THOUGHT SHE HAD ONLY A 50 PER CENT CHANCE OF ANY RECOVERY.
" it's very hard to predict if it's going to be quick or a slow recovery and sometimes you're lucky and things fall into placesometimes it has to do with what kind of fam ily support you and ..and what kind of person you are underneqath "
