tomb of Salman al-Farsi attacked

seems to be only minor damage, thankfully:

BAGHDAD, Iraq Feb 24, 2006 (AP)— Gunmen fired two rockets at a tomb sacred for Shiites south of Baghdad causing damage but no casualties, a Shiite official said.

The tomb of Salman Pak, also known as Salman al-Farisi, was attacked after sunset with two rockets, said Jamal al-Saghir, an aide to Shiite political leader Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim.
One rocket hit the gate to the tomb while the other exploded a few meters from the structure, al-Saghir said.
