Meanwhile The Ongoing Civil War In Iraq: Suicide Bomber Kills 33
Suicide Bomber Kills 33 in Southern Iraq
By QAIS AL-BASHIR, AP

BAGHDAD, Iraq (Aug. 10) - A suicide bomber detonated a belt of explosives on his body near a highly revered Shiite shrine in southern Iraq Thursday, killing at least 33 people and injuring 108, an official said.

The bomber blew himself up while being patted down by policemen near the Imam Ali mosque in the Shiite holy city of Najaf, said Dr. Munthir al-Ithari, the head of Najaf's health directorate. He said one Iranian woman was among the 33 dead and nine Iranians among the 108 injured.

In a statement, the collective Shiite Muslim leadership, Hawza, accused Sunni loyalists of former dictator Saddam Hussein of carrying out the attack.

"We hold Takfiris (Sunni extremists) and Saddamists directly responsible for this horrible crime ... at the same time we hold those who embrace terrorism in Iraq and the countries supporting it as responsible," the statement said.
