In Iraq, the election commission says cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is leading in the results of Saturday’s parliamentary election, with more than half the votes counted. Sadr has led two uprisings against U.S. forces in Iraq since the 2003 U.S. invasion. The preliminary results are seen as a setback for current Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.
