We prove a general combinatorial formula yielding the intersection number c(u,v,w) of three particular Λ-minuscule Schubert classes in any Kac-Moody homogeneous space, generalising the Littlewood-Richardson rule. The combinatorics are based on jeu de taquin rectification in a poset defined by the heap of w.

Keywords: Littlewood-Richardson rule, Schubert calculus, Kac-Moody homogeneous spaces, jeu de taquin.
