In an ominous development, 14 bodies found buried in a garbage dump turned out to be Sunni Arabs from the pro-terrorist town of Madain. Nearly half the people in this town are Shia, and the Shia have suffered much abuse from local Sunni Arab terrorists, and their supporters. Months ago, the Madain Shia appealed to larger Shia groups for support. Shia leaders tried to negotiate with the Sunni Arab tribal leaders in the Madain area. This didn't stop the bullying and abuse. The Madain Shia appealed to the government, which promptly sent several thousand soldiers and police, who reported that there were no problems. Shortly thereafter, dozens of bodies of Madain Shia were hauled out of the nearby river.
