NAJAF, Iraq, Feb 22 (Reuters) About 2,000 Shi'ite protesters in the southern Iraqi city of Najaf called for revenge after a bombing shattered a sacred Shi'ite shrine, a Reuters witness said.

''Rise up Shi'ites. Shi'ites take revenge. Rise up Shi'ites.

Rise up Shi'ites,'' they shouted hours after the bombing blew the golden dome off the mosque in the town of Samarra north of Baghdad.
