Oops!

An Iraqi cleric, who has been living in London for 12 years, has been assassinated at a mosque in Najaf, according to reports.

Abdul Majid al-Khoei, head of the London-based Al-Khoei Foundation, returned to his home in Najaf last week under the protection of the coalition.


Reports say he was attacked by a group of men armed with knives.

Al-Khoei is the the son of the late Grand Ayatollah Abul-Qasim al-Khoei, who was the highest Shi'ite religious authority in the world at the time of the Gulf War.

The whole family was persecuted by Saddam Hussein, with many members murdered or disappeared.

I heard on TV that many Iraqis don't want people that fled the country and lived in comfort in London, Paris, ect, to come back and try to userp rule.

I've actually heard a couple of conflicting reports, some said he was mobbed, others said shot.

But, I think they were after the guy that was with him, which was the "former" Minister Of Religion in Iraq. Some people started shouting at them and one of them pulled a gun and they were both stabbed to death.

But, I do feel what you posted is correct. It will continue to be an interesting few years after the war has ended to see how it actually shapes up in Iraq.
