The Culture Minister in Iraq's US-appointed Interim Government is called Mufid al-Jazairi.

"Heavy equipment, helicopters and other machinery used by Polish-led forces based at Babylon, 100km south of Baghdad, are causing irreparable harm. Just their presence, with their heavy equipment, is harmful in and of itself.

We don't know how much damage the military presence has caused because our experts are not permitted to enter the site.

But we have received information that several archaeological sites have been damaged or destroyed" (mentioning the temples of Ninma and Nabu, and the famed palace of Nibushadnizar).

"We already asked Bremer in June to request that an immediate end be put to these activities, but nothing happened.

workers employed by US contracting firm Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR) had been digging and building in the area around Babylon, causing further damage."

- Mufid al-Jazairi, 1st. August 2004.

So who exactly is "Crista" ?
