.............. Spanish forces refused US order to launch Najaf offensive
By Joshua Levitt in Madrid

Published: May 12 2004 5:00

Spanish military forces in Iraq refused a US command last month to launch an offensive against an Iraqi militia that has since taken the Shia holy city of Najaf, according to Josť Enrique de Ayala, a top general.


Meanwhile Josť Bono, the Spanish defence minister, said Spanish troops would not follow a US order to hand over Moqtada al-Sadr, leader of the militia, "dead or alive".

"As long as we're in Iraq, we'll follow international law," he said.

May 14 (Bloomberg) -- The Imam Ali shrine in Najaf, Shiya Islam's holiest site, was damaged in fighting today between U.S. forces and fighters loyal to Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, the Associated Press reported.

Four holes, about 12 inches (30 centimeters) by eight, are visible on the shrine's dome, AP cited one of reporters as saying. They appeared to have been caused by machinegun fire, it said.
