Images From The Front: Iraq

Baghdad - Reuters reports Guerrillas have fired rockets at the headquarters of the U.S.-led administration in central Baghdad. Loudspeakers ordered personnel in the compound to take cover as explosions echoed across the Iraqi capital. "Attack. Take cover. This is not a test," warned loudspeakers at the U.S. occupied compound formerly one of Saddam Hussein's palaces. Sirens wailed, flares lit up the night sky and U.S. helicopters clattered overhead.
