      U.S. Strikes Iraq:
      Posted @ 08:10 PST
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      WASHINGTON, Mar 20: - U.S. forces launched a surgical military
      strike against a "target of opportunity" near Baghdad after U.S.
      intelligence detected the possibility Iraqi leaders were in the
      area, a senior government official said .

      The official declined to identify the leaders who were targeted or
      to say whether the attack was successful. Earlier, White House
      press secretary Ari Fleischer told reporters the war against Iraq
      had begun. "The opening stages of the disarmament of the Iraqi
      regime have begun," he said. Bush planned to address the nation at
      10:15 p.m. EST, little more than two hours after the deadline the
      president set for Saddam Hussein to flee his nation or face war.

      Fleischer spoke as anti-aircraft fire and explosions were heard
      across Baghdad after air raid sirens went off at the capital at
      dawn. Fleischer did not elaborate on his statement, but U.S.
      officials said it signaled the beginning of military action against
      Iraq.......(AFP/Reuters)
