Iraqi Weekly Newspaper Closed by U.S.-Led Coalition, AP Says

March 29 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S.-led coalition closed an Iraqi weekly newspaper run by supporters of a Shiite Muslim cleric, saying its articles increased the threat of violence against occupying forces, the Associated Press reported.

U.S. soldiers yesterday used chains and locks to close the doors of the al-Hawza newspaper in Baghdad, AP said, citing Abdel- Hadi Darraja, a representative of Moqtada Sadr, a cleric based in the city of Najaf. Sadr has criticized the U.S.-led occupation of Iraq, AP said.

About 1,000 of Sadr's supporters demonstrated peacefully outside the newspaper's office after its closure, AP said. The paper will be closed for 60 days, AP reported, citing a letter from the U.S.-led administration in Iraq.
