  •  another shiite shrine has been attacked (none)
    the tomb of salman pak:

    The tomb of Salman Pak, also known as Salman al-Farisi, was attacked after sunset with two rockets, said Jamal al-Saghir, an aide to Shiite political leader Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim.. . .  Al-Farisi, known as "Salman the Pure," was a 7th centrury Persian convert to Islam and served the barber to the Prophet Muhammad.

    Although the shrine attracts Muslim pilgrims, it is not considered as venerable as the Askariya mosque in Samarra . . ..  One rocket hit the gate to the tomb while the other exploded nears the structure, al-Saghir said.

    how long before someone decides to try to knock off either al-Sistani, al-Sadr, or both?
