Interesting: Ananova reports,

Eight people with ties to Osama bin Laden’s network are being questioned over the atrocity at Imam Ali Mosque in Najaf.

A senior Najaf police official said the suspects include two Saudis, a Palestinian carrying a Jordanian passport and six Iraqis.

He added the al-Qaida links had been determined through interrogation of the captives.

A story worth following.
