For the first time since violence
erupted this week -- American warplanes


dropped bombs in at least two
airstrikes. Until now -- U-S and
Coalition


aircraft have only been providing
support.



(NAT) - gunfire



Iraqi forces are fighting back against
shiite militia members, who are trying


to seize control of oil-rich Basra.
Putting himself in a direct faceoff
with


militants, Prime Minister Nouri
al-Maliki ordered gunmen to hand in
their


weapons by today. he's also given
residents until april 8th to turn over


firearms.



(NAT) - rpg launched



The violence has spread to Baghdad
where a weekend curfew is now in
effect.


Mortars and rockets hit the
heavily-armed green zone every day this
week,


killing two American citizens.

THINK IS A MAJOR SETBACK TO THE SURGE."

NEWS / THE WHITE HOUSE) - "but the
White


House argues -- this battle is a sign
of progress.. With Iraqi forces in


control of their own security. The U-S
stayed out of the way -- until Iraqis


asked for help."



The militia battling the Iraqi forces
is loyal to Shiite cleric Muqtada


al-Sadr. He's calling for a political
solution to the crisis, but has stopped


short of ordering his gunmen to lay
down their weapons.



the US believes that some of his
followers have now splintered off.. And
have


turned to iran for money and weapons.

GRAPHIC=NIT The Virginia Tech Hokies saw


their Season come to an end Wednesday
night with a loss to Ole Miss in the
N-I-T Quarterfinals.


Tech fell a win short of getting
a trip to New York City.


But the Hokies did NOT fall short of
expectations, as they won 21 games with
a roster loaded with underclassmen.


That leads to high expectations
for the future.
