2004/08/08

Today in Iraq: "Although US troops blocked the main routes into Najaf, the city itself remained largely under Mahdi control as Shia fighters travelled in from the towns of Amara, Kut and Diwaniya, using dirt tracks to bypass the closed roads. Others gathered in front of the mosque in the centre of Kufa, Najaf's sister town where al-Sadr is based. ?Yes, yes, Moqtada,? they chanted. ?By soul and blood, we worship Moqtada.? "
