GNFI - Getting the bad guys in the middle of the night

The shooting continued for about three hours. The grenade blasts shattered windows in nearby homes. At the Mherian home, first a soldier and then one of the Arabs took up positions on his roof. The Arab had clambered across rooftops two houses away to reach the home of the Mherians, who are of Armenian descent.

By dawn, when silence had returned to the neighborhood, Mherian's high-school-aged daughter discovered the body lying in a corner of the roof. There was a crater, evidently from a grenade that sprayed shrapnel all over and killed the Arab. His nationality was not clear to the Mherians.

Ardashees Mherian, a computer salesman, rushed to the street and told the soldiers, "There's a body on my roof."

They quickly carried the dead man away, but the Mherians have been unable to remove all the blood that stained their roof.

The tenants rented the house in July from its owner, Ali Sharat, who everyone said had not been seen in the neighborhood lately. Neighbors noted that they drove in and out in a car painted orange and white, the characteristic colors of Iraqi taxis. They would load the car with cartons of clothes, though residents now suspect that the apparel hid explosives and weapons. "When they carried things out, it always took two men to do it. It looked heavier than clothing," said Abdul Hamid.

Someone tipped us I bet!
