Iraqi defenders were believed to have moved there from other parts of the country. U.S. commandos were in •the region, and warplanes were attacking. U.S.-led fighters and bombers also hit Iraqi positions near the border with Syria, where special forces wen? try ing to prevent regime loyalists from slipping out of Iraq and to keep foreign fighters from enteri ng. There were signs of difficulties ahead in efforts at building a new society. Two Islamic clerics were hacked to death by a mob in Najaf at one of Shiite Islam’s holiest shrines, witnesses said One of the clerics killed, Haider al-Kadar, was a widely hated loyalist of Saddam, part of the Iraqi leader’s Ministry of Religion. The other was Abdul Majid al-Khoei, a high-ranking Shiite cleric and son of one of t he religion’s most prominent spiritual leaders, who was persecuted by Saddam. I Ley wen* killed at a meeting meant to serve as a model for reconciliation in post-Saddam Iraq.

One senior Pentagon official said military commanders have asked reb . gious leaders in the capital to help calm the populace and reduce the looting. One Marine commander said he would institute a dusk-to-dawn curfew. Some Iraqis did what they could to prevent loot ing. At al-Kindi hospital, medical students wore sent into neighborhoods to retrieve medicine that had lM*en taken on Wednesday. They returned with double-decker buses loaded with boxes of badly needed supplies. In Washington, one administration official told Congress the Pentagon envisions parallel ministries run by Americans and Iraqis after the war until an interim government can be established. Paul Wol-fowitz, deputy secretary of defense, offered no timetable for creation of the interim government or how long U.S. troops would remain in Iraq. After thr(?e weeks of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Air Force Secretary James Roche told ONN: “We effectively have won the* conflict. ’Hie regime is gone.” In northern Iraq, Ll. Col. Robert Waltemeyer, com rn andor of a special forces unit, said troops would eat ortho city of Mosul “in a matter of hours or days.” Gen. Bahakir Zebari, a Kurdish commander, said remnants of Saddam’s Baath party and Iraqi military commanders in Mosul had offered to surrender on condition that the U.S.-led bombing stopped and they received amnesty. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said at least some of the Iraqi forces inside the city had stacked their weapons in accordance with U.S. surrender demands. Waltemeyer said the U.S. military would meet with representatives from Mosul on Friday morning in an attempt to negotiate a surrender, although he said, “I’m not here to make deals.” Kurdish forces, which have battled Saddam for years, triggered celebrations in Kirkuk when they reached the city, an ancestral home and gateway to Iraq’s north em oilfields.
