Iraqi bridge sabotaged?

Hammorabi has info from the Iraqi media suggesting the Al-Aaimah bridge was sabotaged beforehand:
The reports indicated that the bridge had been weakened from several points including the fence just prior to the incident. A source in the Interior Ministry told Al-Sabah newspaper that the investigators are now examining traces of deliberate cuts believed to be done with a hacksaw in the bridge structure.

Other information indicated that some of the bodies of the dead might have been exposed to poison before death. There are people among the crowds witnessed possible chemicals sprayed on them from the other end of the bridge which added more chaos after the stampede started. The stampede started after several rockets fired away from the site on another crowds of Shiites which killed many of them. Immediately after this some one on the bridge shouted that there is a suicidal terrorist on the bridge.
