CBNNews.com – He’s been called “the most dangerous man in Iraq.”

Now, the radical Shiite militia leader Muqtada al-Sadr is considering a cease-fire.

Al-Sadr met with other Shiite leaders Thursday.

They’re asking him to rejoin the political process. His supporters pulled out of the political process three weeks ago, after al-Maliki met with President Bush in Jordan.

Al-Sadr is the commander of the Mahdi army – that’s the brutal militia behind much of the sectarian violence.

Until the walkout, al-Sadr’s faction had been an integral part of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s governing coalition.

Observers hope any agreement on al-Sadr’s part will curb the bloodshed in the country.
