Shia Raid Jordan Embassy

The Shia are still protesting the Hilla massacre in Iraq:

More than 2,000 Shiites marched Friday through Baghdad, with some breaking into the Jordanian Embassy and raising the Iraqi flag atop it, to protest the alleged involvement of a Jordanian in Iraq’s single deadliest suicide bombing — a Feb. 28 attack south of Baghdad that killed 125 people.

Shiites have staged smaller protests in recent days after the Iraqi government Monday condemned celebrations allegedly held by the family of a Jordanian man suspected of carrying out the Feb. 28 attack in Hillah. Nearly all the victims were Shiite police and army recruits.


Friday’s protest came just two days after an influential Shiite leader claimed during Iraq’s first National Assembly meeting that Jordan allegedly was not doing enough to prevent terrorists from slipping into Iraq.
