BAGHDAD - The committee organizing a sit-in inside Baghdad's Green Zone called on protesters to leave the heavily fortified government district on Sunday, 24 hours after they overran security barriers and stormed into parliament.

A spokeswoman speaking from a square outside the district said the people would exit "from a position of strength" out of respect for a Shi'ite Muslim pilgrimage underway in the capital but would return afterwards to follow up on their demands.
