Muslim scholars move to curb fatwas
Muslim scholars move to curb fatwas

The Muslim world's top scholars have agreed that fatwas, or religious edicts, should only be issued by clerics with religious authority.

Themove is meant to weaken statements by figures involved in fighting in Iraq who ordain violence.

The three-day meeting in Amman, which ended on Wednesday, has for the first time gathered representatives of eight Sunni and Shia Muslim schools of thought.
