"We are moving fast now to contain the crisis and end the bloodshed," he said.

Najaf's Governor Adnan al-Zorfi confirms the initiative and says the council is awaiting the response of Sadr's office.
However, he stresses the militia must leave the holy city without preconditions.
"We do not negotiate with militia and we have no intention of negotiating with them," Mr Zorfi said.
"The situation is becoming unbearable, the militia must leave now."
But the immediate prospects for a stop to the US assault look bleak as the Sadr camp issue its call for US troops to retreat from Najaf before any negotiations would take place.
"The Americans must leave first, then we would be open to negotiations," Sheikh Ali al-Sumeisim said.

Having embedded reporters has since WW2 been the best way for the people at home to get news of fighting.
Whether or not the reporting is accurate depends on the leanings of the reporter him/herself.
