Supporters of the Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr protest in Baghdad against US-led coalition targeting ISIL.

    Thousands of Iraqis have rallied in central Baghdad against a US-led military campaign targeting fighters from the group known as ISIL.

    Followers of Shia cleric, Muqtada al-Sadr, called on the Iraqi government to reject US interference in the battle against ISIL, as the US-led coalition formed plans to intensify raids against the group.
