In a Shiite sector of Baghdad, mourners at a funeral procession for two Iraqis killed in a clash with American troops chant "No to America." The outburst raises concerns that Shiites might turn against the U.S. occupying force. Tensions are heightened by a rising postwar death toll that is far higher for Iraqis than for the U.S. military.
