From where I'm sitting now I can hear both Sunni and Shia mosques are condemning the attack through their loudspeakers.Maybe Sunni and Shia mosques jointly condemning an attack by foreign terrorists will be the good thing to come of it.
I believe there are foreign terror groups behind this attack and I don't think local insurgent would do such a thing, simply because this particular shrine had been in Sunni territory for a thousand years and the residents of Samarra had always benefited from the movement of religious tourism and pilgrimage.
Things look scary here in Baghdad and I hope there won't be more updates to report as I can't see a positive thing coming out of this.
