This just in from a student inside of Iran...

"I got confirmed reports a few minutes ago about 5 Iranians being killed in Kerbala.

These 5 were among the Mahdi's Army of Sadr. They are believed to be members of IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guards)."

Here's the story :

Five Iranian Bassijis, three Iraqis killed in Southern Iraq

Five Iranian bassijis and three Iraqis were killed when foreign troops fired on their vehicle near a checkpoint near the Shi'ite town of Kerbala, police and hospital officials said on Wednesday.

Police said the incident happened late on Tuesday when the vehicle in which the victims were travelling ran a checkpoint in Kerbala, 110 km (68 miles) south of Baghdad.

Fighting has raged since Sunday in Shi'ite areas of Iraq between foreign troops and militiamen loyal to radical Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr.

Thousands of Iranians are in Iraq ahead of the Shi'ite Muslim holy day of Arbain this month when millions of pilgrims are expected to converge on Kerbala.
