Dinar debacle pits Iraq's finance minister against Sadrists

Iraq's finance minister is caught in a worsening confrontation with the Sadrist Movement.

The clash erupted after Shiite cleric and politician Muqtada Al-Sadr took to Twitter on Feb. 17 to demand that top finance officials be summoned by the parliament over currency-related issues.

Importantly, Sadr's call for a halt to the smuggling of hard currency may also be targeted at Iran.
