NAJAF, Iraq - One of the most sacred shrines of Shia Islam suffered minor damage during clashes Tuesday between U.S. forces and militiamen that killed at least 13 Iraqis, some of them civilians.

No matter who is responsible for this, the US forces will be blamed. Period. This is not just enraging Iraqis, it will enrage Shiites the world over. Juan Cole has more.
