Between 2,000 and 3,000 Iraqis were killed as the 3rd Infantry Division moved through southwestern Baghdad, U.S. Central Command spokesman Jim Wilkinson said.

Gen. Tommy Franks was briefed on the toll of Saturday's raid, which took troops on a 25-mile run through the southern sector of the city, Wilkinson said.

"I know the number that Gen. Franks was briefed on and it was between 2,000 and 3,000," Wilkinson said.

He said while some Iraqi civilians welcomed the troops, other Iraqis put up a fight, including a mixture of Republican Guard and irregular forces.

"I don't want to overstate the heavy fighting. A lot of the time there was no fighting. In some portion of the time, there was fighting," he said.
