Extra precautions after shrine attack
by UPI

BAGHDAD - U.S. forces in Iraq sealed off Sadr City following an insurgent attack on the holy shrine of Samara.

According to a correspondent for the Kuwait News Agency KUNA, U.S. military tanks and bulldozers were placed on bridges that separate the suburb from central Baghdad.

In addition, Iraqi and U.S. security forces set up a number of roadblocks to check pedestrians and vehicles.

A government spokesman told KUNA that a curfew would be imposed later in the day in order to prevent any violence in retaliation for the attack, which damaged two golden minarets at the shrine.
