BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Planes attacked targets on the outskirts of Baghdad and anti-aircraft fire crackled in the sky early on Saturday, just hours after an intense U.S. blitz that triggered giant fireballs and deafening explosions.

"The planes are flying very low," Reuters correspondent Nadim Ladki said. "They are attacking targets on the outskirts of the city."

A few minutes earlier, Ladki said, emergency sirens sounded across the city.
