What a %^&*$ mess

More on the we-can't-seem-to-get-along sectarian violence in Iraq. From Damien Cave and John O'Neil of the Washington Post:
The gunmen who battled Iraqi and American forces near Najaf on Sunday were members of a Shiite cult that planned to storm the city during a religious festival and kill the nation’s top Shiite clerics, Iraqi officials said today.

About 200 members of the group, which called itself “Soldiers From Heaven,” died in the fighting, which lasted until about 4 a.m. today. Iraqi officials said that 60 others were wounded and as many as 120 were captured.
Yeh, I had to read that twice. Shiite gunman were planning on killing Shiite clerics.

What a %^&*$ mess.
