Meanwhile, the Saudi government has challenged assertions that Saudis were involved in the bombing.

Which raises the question to me...what happens when it is proved to be so?
Saudi Arabia yesterday challenged those who claimed its citizens were involved in the bomb attack in the Iraqi holy city of Najaf to produce the evidence. "Some sources in Iraq have said that Saudi citizens were involved in the terrorist incident which claimed the life of (prominent cleric and politician) Mohammad Baqer Al Hakim," a foreign ministry spokesman said, quoted by the official SPA news agency.

"These sources did not present any proof for their claims.

"The government of Saudi Arabia hopes these sources will reveal the information they have and pass it on to the government of the kingdom instead of making unsubstantiated allegations," he added.
