Iraq denies surrender reports

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - An Iraqi military spokesmansays the army's whole 51st Division is still fighting, denying a claim by U.S. officials that the commander and his deputy have surrendered.

"The 51st army division is still fighting the invading troops ferociously and courageously and inflicting upon the enemy forces the ugliest losses," he said, reading a statement on Iraqi television on Saturday.

U.S. defence officials said on Friday that the commander and the vice commander of the division had surrendered to marines in the southern Iraqi desert. It was the first reported surrender by senior Iraqi military officers.
