Iraqi convoy rolls south of Baghdad, first relief supplies available<BR>

EDITOR'S NOTE: Watch this site for periodic updates on "Destination Baghdad" – the war in Iraq.

Warplanes attacked a convoy of Iraqi armored vehicles leaving Basra under cover of sandstorms Wednesday, raising hopes that British ground troops could soon enter a city feared on the verge of a humanitarian crisis. Iraq claimed American missiles killed 14 civilians in Baghdad.

The possibility of a major battle loomed south of the capital as a second, far larger, Iraqi column of vehicles moved in the direction of American forces aiming for Saddam Hussein's seat of power.
