    In today's Independent, Patrick Cockburn writes:

    There are growing suspicions in Iraq that the official story of the battle outside Najaf between a messianic Iraqi cult and the Iraqi security forces supported by the US, in which 263 people were killed and 210 wounded, is a fabrication. The heavy casualties may be evidence of an unpremeditated massacre.
    It is difficult to know exactly what happened in Najaf. Unfortunately, followers of Iraq news are often forced to work as detectives and search western media and Iraqi media alike for clues. The above account cannot be confirmed yet, but it deserves to be shared. eIraq will follow this story closely.
