Iraq’s top cleric undergoes surgery
Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani

Iraq’s most influential cleric Ali al-Sistani, on Thursday, underwent successful surgery on a broken thigh bone, an Iraqi medical source said.

The 89-year-old cleric wields clout in Iraq and his views are closely followed by the country’s politicians.

A team of Iraqi surgeons operated on al-Sistani in Iraq’s southern province of Najaf, the source added.

“He left the operating room a while ago. The operation was successful,’’ the source added without details.

Earlier Thursday, al-Sistani’s office said he had suffered the day before a sprain in the left leg resulting in a fracture in the thigh bone.
