BAGHDAD - Anti-US Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr urged Iraqis on Thursday to protest against any possible US military intervention in Libya, saying the United States installed Gaddafi and now wants to remove him.

Sadr accused Washington and western nations of planting agents in Arab states and supporting dictatorships, then intervening in the name of democracy and claiming to liberate Arabs, citing the overthrow of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
