6. Meanwhile in Najaf...
From NYT 4/22/04:

"Earlier this week, some 2,500 American troops around the adjacent cities of Najaf and Kufa began drawing down to only 500, after an American decision not to risk further angering Shiites by chasing Mr. Sadr down in his hiding place in Najaf, a city held holy by Shiites."
