((Some neighborhoods in Iraq have degenerated into anarchy. The collapse of Saddams regime has touched off a wave of looting. But the Pentagon says its not representative of the entire country, or even most of Baghdad. Coalition troops have been ordered to restore some sense of order but for some it's not soon enough. Hmza Abas/Hospital Administrator "We tried out best with our military persons not to let them come inside our hospital and steal the best things of my hospital." In Baghdad, desperate families have besieged the military intelligence headquarters, searching for relatives jailed by Saddam. Theyre afraid their brothers, fathers and sons are still trapped in underground prisons.
There's more destruction in the capital city as well...this time from Coalition ground troops. Nearly 50 homes were damaged when soldiers destroyed a stockpile of enemy weapons. To the north, Kurdish and Coalition troops took control of Mosul when the entire Iraqi 5th Corps surrendered and gave up their weapons. But within hours looting broke out some people storming banks others defacing images of Saddam. Central Command has released about 50 cards listing their most wanted. But there are few facts about the whereabouts of Saddam and his top men.
General Tommy Franks: "Well, they are either dead of they are running like hell. ))
