Sporadic Fighting Reported in Karbala
Sporadic fighting continues between U.S. forces and insurgents loyal to Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr in Karbala. In southern cities of Basra and Amarah, British troops took fire from other al-Sadr loyalists after a close aide to the cleric offered rewards for the capture or killing of British soldiers.
