Karbala, Iraq: Coming under heavy rocket and sniper fire,
a soldier from Black Sheep platoon, 1-36 Infantry, 1st A.D., fires
on militia positions outside the Mukaiyam Mosque, which was an enemy
arms cache. Fighting in Karbala had continued unabated for close
to a week at this point, and American patrols were beginning to
probe close to the mosque area, which was heavily defended.
