Paul Bremer declares militant Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr to be an outlaw and an Iraqi judge issues an arrest warrant for him.

Paul Bremer describes the insurgency:

"It is not a Shi'ite uprising. It is a militia, an illegal militia, run by an outlaw, a group of people who have attacked, first and foremost, Iraqis — Iraqi police, Iraqi army, the Iraqi civil defense force, and coalition forces and Americans. And we will deal with them."
