NAJAF, IRAQ - NOVEMBER 06: A worker lays out prayer rugs at Imam Ali Shrine November 6, 2003 in Najaf, Iraq. Shelled during the failed anti-Sadam uprising of 1991, and used as a base by insurgents fighting the US in August, the Imam Ali Shrine, is one of the holiest Shiite Muslim sites. With the fall of Saddam Hussein’s regime the Shiites have emerged from decades of repression to seize the reins of power in Iraq. Making up over sixty percent of Iraq’s population the Shiites will most likely determine the future course of one of the Middle East’s most important countries. (Photo by Matt Moyer)
