Repairs Planned for Iraqi Mosques
Iraq Fact of the Day

Coalition forces are working closely with Iraqi religious leaders to repair and improve local mosques. U.S. Marines recently met with the governor of the Al Anbar Province and 51 Imams to discuss plans to repair the mosques. Under the plan, each mosque slated for improvement will be allocated $1,200 and will employ 10 Iraqis for two weeks. By working with the Iraqi people, U.S. troops are making continued progress in rebuilding local communities.
