BAGHDAD (AFP) Mar 23, 2003 An Israeli-made missile was found in
Baghdad after US-led air bombardments of the capital, Iraqi state
television charged Sunday. "An Israeli-made missile was found among
the missiles fired by the forces carrying out bombing raids on Baghdad,"
the television said.
A powerful explosion reverberated around the Iraqi capital early Sunday
followed by anti-aircraft fire and more blasts after air raid warning
sirens sounded, an AFP reporter said.
The first dull blast which occurred just after 9:00 a.m.followed a night of
violent bombardment which briefly cut power to the southern suburbs
where anti-aircraft gunners opened up.
