Anti-American Shiite militia leader Muqtada al-Sadr ordered his followers to defy government orders to surrender their weapons, as U.S. jets struck Shiite extremists to bolster a faltering Iraqi offensive against gunmen in the city. He called the fight for control of Basra "a decisive and final battle."
