Explosions Seen from Basra
War with Iraq: 21 March 2003, Friday.

As the ground war got under way in Iraq, explosions and fireballs were seen in the direction of Basra, Iraq's second city.

The explosions could be a mix of artillery fire and bombings from warplanes.

Meanwhile, British troops secured a position on the Faw peninsula in southern Iraq, a strategic point for oil tanker traffic at the head of the Gulf, and later headed north meeting only light resistance, a British military spokesman said.
