Najaf Saudi suspects arrested after e-mail says "the dog is dead"

Two Saudis arrested after the Najaf attack in Iraq that killed leading Shiite cleric Mohammad Baqer al-Hakim were picked up after sending an e-mail saying “mission accomplished: the dog is dead”, The Times reported. The men were grabbed by a crowd in Najaf Saturday, the day after the bombing, and taken to the nearest police station after being seen sending the e-mail from an Internet cafe, the source said requesting anonymity. The bombing Friday in the Iraqi holy city of Najaf killed at least 83 people including Ayatollah Hakim, regarded as a moderate Shiite. The two suspects apparently attracted the attention of the son of the cafe owner after having “offered a larger than usual sum of money to use a computer,” the British daily said. It was then that the son saw the men send a message saying “mission accomplished: the dog is dead.” Full Story
