Shia suicide bomber in IQIZ?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080121/...I5Z86zmrsV6w8F

From reading this article, the bomber has a typically Shiite name, Ali Hussein. I realize it's the AP quoting Iraqi sources, so who knows what the truth is. But assuming it were accurate, how likely is it that a Shiite would be a member of IQIZ, or that a Sunni would have that name? Just wondering.

To remember, and then go back to the ledgers and the commuter train, that was impossible. He knew he would eat his heart out if it ever came to that."
