Second Sunni Mosque Is Blown Up in Basra
June 16, 2007
BAGHDAD, June 16 — Hooded gunmen clad in black
blew up another Sunni mosque in the southern city of Basra today
after ordering the police officers at the mosque to flee,
and despite a curfew imposed by Iraq’s central government,
witnesses and security officials said.
The blast at the Al-Ashrah Al-Mubashra mosque in central Basra
— the second Sunni mosque razed in as many days —
suggested that Shiite militias south of the capital
have rejected calls for restraint from Iraqi leaders
after explosions Wednesday toppled two minarets
at a revered Shiite shrine in Samarra.

Wednesday 23 August:
‘Khiam became a symbol of resistance’
Standing on a hill above the village of Khiam
in southern Lebanon lie the ruins of a prison used
by the Israelis during the occupation to hold detainees
- a place of torture and despair.
When the occupation came to an end in 2000
the locals did not wait for the Israelis to withdraw.
They showed up in force and smashed their way
through the gates as the guards fled down a cliff face
to the rear of the compound.
The liberation of Khiam prison became
a symbol of resistance and a museum of liberation.
It had a visitors’ centre and a bookshop,
and hosted regular events
when former prisoners would meet
with their families to remember fallen comrades.
The courtyard was home
to several captured Israeli vehicles,
which now lie in pieces strewn around the remnants
of the buildings.
This was clearly a propaganda strike
against the Lebanese.
The locals insist that this location
was of little strategic importance
and occupied only by its caretaker during the war.
The rest of Khiam is typical of towns in the south.
Residential buildings have been hit at random.
Engineers are working around the clock
to restore the power.
The only drinking water is from temporary tanks
installed in the town centre.
The locals are doing their best
to clear out the ruined shops
and clear the rubble that is everywhere.
