Iraqi PM freezes raids targeting militia     

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has ordered a nationwide freeze on raids against suspected Shiite militiamen.  The announcement comes one day after Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr hinted at retaliation if the arrests of his followers did not stop. Al-Sadr's Mahdi Army militia fought government troops in Basra and Baghdad last week.

Al-Maliki's statement issued Friday did not mention the Mahdi Army by name or give a timeframe for the freeze. It says only that the move is designed to give a "chance to those who repented and want to lay down their arms."
