American soldiers in Iraq are going "house to house, building to building'' in search of weapons. And while insurgents are fighting back, authorities say they're aiming attacks at bridges and roads outside of Fallujah rather than targeting US troops.

The US military says the assault in Fallujah has entered "phase two"...an operation to root out militants who remain holed up in the city...

4:20:41 "Another guy popped out. Tried to shoot me. Through a frag at us - ran away from the frag..."
Troops conducting a sweep of neighborhoods that were once strongholds of the insurgents discover what appears to be a makeshift bomb factory.

" booby traps"
They tread carefully...one wrong step could set off of booby traps that lurk around every corner.

(video and sound of explosion)


Advance teams make sure the lethal obstacles are destroyed or removed before fighting forces move in.
The focus of the assault has now shifted south...the military says most of the northern sector is now cordoned off, under coalition control.

(sot Capt. John Griffin :05)

"Claiming the city is secure doesn't actually mean that the resistance is gone, it just means that we have secured the area and have control."

(Bridge)


BUT AS US AND IRAQI FORCES PUT THE SQUEEZE ON INSURGENTS IN FALLUJAH, MILITANTS STEPPED UP THEIR CAMPAIGN OF VIOLENCE ELSEWHERE...INCLUDING A DEVASTATING SUICIDE CAR BOMB THAT DETONATED IN THE MIDDLE OF A TRAFFIC JAM HERE IN BAGHDAD...

(TRACK)

The blast ripped through one of the capital's main thoroughfares during the busiest time of the day...exploding just after a US military convoy passed.
But US forces escaped injury. Iraqis paid the price. At least 17 people were killed.
North, in Mosul, Iraq's third largest city...militants attacked police stations and set vehicles alight.
US troops have been called in.
Insurgents may not be putting up much of a fight in Fallujah, but they're making their presence known pretty much everywhere else. CHARLIE D'AGATA, CBS NEWS, BAGHDAD))

When it comes to treating breast cancer, doctors are opting to give some women chemotherapy BEFORE removing the tumor.
In fact, it's a growing trend.
Elizabeth Edwards, the wife of former democratic vice presidential nominee John Edwards, is taking that route.

[OUT Q=have a mastectomy]


That means a woman wouldn't need to have her entire breast removed. Instead she may be able to get a lumpectomy --where only a portion is removed.
Doctor Williams says another advantage is that they can find out how responsive the tumor is to chemotherapy -- just in case they need use it again.
