Iraq's Hashed al-Shaabi paramilitary force Wednesday ordered its supporters to end their sit-in at the U.S. embassy compound in Baghdad, but hardliners pledged to stay put outside the mission.
 
"You delivered your message," the Hashed said in a statement addressed to the crowds encircling the embassy since Tuesday in outrage over deadly American air strikes on a pro-Iran Hashed faction at the weekend. 
 
It called on supporters to regroup outside the high-security Green Zone where the mission is located, but a leading commander in Kataeb Hezbollah, the group targeted in the U.S. raids, told AFP they would "remain" at the embassy.
