US and Britain to rebuild gold-domed mosque



Sectarian violence plagues Iraq after the bombing of al-Askari shrine in Samarra. At least 130 people have died so far.

Sunnis and Sunni mosques have come under attack in retaliation, causing the main Sunni party to withdraw from negotiations to form the Iraqi government.

Al-Arabiya reporter Atwar Bahjat along with cameraman Adnan Khairallah and soundman Khaled Mohsen were senselessly murdered by gunmen near Samarra. Atwar Bahjat had worked for both al-Jazeera and al-Arabiya.


Iran's maniacal president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad blames the bombing on "Zionists and failed occupiers." Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also blames Israel and the United States.
