Rice in Iraq for surprise visit

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has arrived in Baghdad on a surprise visit to Iraq.

She said she hoped to see further reconciliation of the various sectarian groups in Iraq. Ms Rice arrived in the city a day after Shia cleric Moqtada Sadr threatened to wage “open war” on Iraq’s government.

He urged them to halt operations against his supporters. On Saturday, Iraqi and US troops clashed with his forces in Baghdad and the south.

A cleric declares open war and Condoleezza Rice is going for a surprise visit to verify?
