      > still extremely tense and that there is no cease fire as the US
      > occupation forces are claiming.
      > Ad-Dari said that US sharpshooters have not stopped shooting since
      > the cease fire was first announced and that most streets of al-
      > Fallujah are targets of the American snipers who have spread out
      > throughout the city. More than ten people have been shot down in the
      > last two days alone, ad-Dari said, to say nothing of many wounded.
      > Whole families are stuck in their houses and haven't been able to
      > come out for more than a week.
      > "We in the Board of Muslim `Ulama' know perfectly well that what's
      > going on now on the ground in al-Fallujah is simply an American plot
      > to completely slaughter our people there," he said.
      > Ad-Dari said that other parts of Iraq are witnessing major battles
      > even though the media are not paying attention. He cited Abu Ghurayb
      > as an example, whre the Americans on Wednesday attacked the Mosque of
      > Hamzah ibn `Abd al-Muttalib, blew down its doors and desecrated its
      > sanctuary with their boots, tore up copies of the Qur'an and threw
      > them on the ground. They arrested the imam of the mosque, Shaykh
      > Yasin Hasan az-Zawbi`i and his three sons Ahmad, Mahmud, and
      > Mu'ayyad, as well as a guest who happened to be visiting at the time
      > of the American raid. He said that blood still stained the mosque
      > after the occupation troops left, proof that one of the captives was
      > killed or wounded inside.
      > Ad-Dari also mentioned events in Ba`qubah, Mosul, Samarra', al-Bayji
      > and other Iraqi cities where the heroic Resistance to the occupation
      > is underway, though he noted that the struggle looks as if it will be
      > a long one.
      > "Yet all we hear on the media is guided by the occupation forces.
      > Only, the real situation is much worse and more severe than what the
      > media portray," ad-Dari said. Ad-Dari noted that large numbers of

      > the occupation forces a major problem.
