Good Evening.
Also today, Iraqi TV is now showing two men who are described as the pilots of a downed U-S helicopter.
The Iraqis forced down an Apache chopper during heavy fighting last night. The two men described as crew members did not speak to the camera. They appeared confused.
Meanwhile it could be hours or days before the U-S led coalition reaches Baghdad- it depends on the type of resistance they face. The weather could also play a role as some fierce sandstorms head their way. Chris Lawrence joins us live from Kuwait with more on what's going on.

One day after the allied fighters suffered their biggest losses the wounded were transported to a hospital near Ramstein Air Base in Germany. On Monday television viewers around the world got their first look at American prisoners of war. Iraqi forces ambushed a supply convoy near An Nasiriyah and captured 5 soldiers. Earlier in the day Saddam was on TV telling the Iraqi people victory is coming. But U-S officials say the tape could be a bluff recorded ahead of the war. Back on the streets of Umm Qasr, Iraqi troops refused to back down. British troops are ready to use the port as a launch point delivering aid to the Iraqi people,. but fighting is slowing down the plan. The battle continues further north in An Nasiriyah. After two days of fierce fighting and several casualties coalition forces have pounded the city with heavy artillery fire.))

Tuberculosis cases in the United States fell to an all-time low last year -- but they went up in Virginia.
Officials at the state Department of Health say there were 315 cases last year -- nine more than in 2001.
More than half of last year's cases were in northern Virginia.
It is believed the increase is tied to more immigrants coming from places where T-B goes untreated. They say immigrants from eight countries -- including Vietnam, Peru and Mexico -- account for more than two-thirds of the T-B cases in America.
Nationwide, the number of T-B cases fell nearly six-percent, last year, to just more than 15-thousand.
