Saheb al-Amiri

Saheb al-Amiri (d. 27 December, 2006) was an Iraqi militant and insurgent, a high ranking member of the Shia Islamist Mahdi Army and senior aide to Muqtada al-Sadr. He was killed in a U.S. raid in late 2006. Al-Amiri's death prompted al-Sadr to prolong his then boycott of the government by Sadrist members of parliament and ministers, which Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki hoped he would end soon thereafter.
