Fin del boycott suni

Igual se me ha pasado desapercibido, pero no he visto esta noticia en la prensa española:
Iraq's new Shiite-dominated government on Sunday welcomed the end of a Sunni Arab boycott of politics, encouraging a newly formed Sunni bloc to distance itself from insurgent attacks against civilians and security forces.

The radical Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr, meanwhile, took up the unlikely role of mediator between Shiite and Sunni factions, circulating a message that called for all sides to renounce the killing of all Iraqis, a Sunni official said.

A man looks at the wreckage left after a car bomb detonated near a U.S. military combat patrol close to an Iraqi police station in al-Khadasia, Tikrit, 130 kilometers (80 miles) north of Baghdad in Iraq Sunday, May 22, 2005. The blast wounded two Iraqi police officers and three U.S. soldiers.

The overtures by opponents of the new Iraqi government emerged as violence in Iraq has increasingly involved blood-for-blood attacks on Sunni and Shiite clerics.

An influential Sunni group, the Association of Muslim Scholars, has blamed Shiite-led security forces for the killings of Sunni preachers, saying on its Web site Sunday that one cleric was tortured with an electric drill before he was killed.

On Saturday, more than 1,000 Sunnis from the association and other groups, joined by other Sunni religious and tribal leaders, said they wanted to help write Iraq's new constitution and compete in elections. The announcement broke a de facto political boycott by most Sunnis that had held since U.S.-led forces routed former president Saddam Hussein and his Sunni-led government in April 2003.

¿nOOOO? Que raro....¿Pero a quién le podría interesar esto? "The radical Shiite cleric Moqtada Sadr, meanwhile, took up the unlikely role of mediator between Shiite and Sunni factions, circulating a message that called for all sides to renounce the killing of all Iraqis, a Sunni official said"

¿Y lo del triángulo suni? La gente ni pajolera, se pensarán que es una marca de zumo de naranja.
