Basra, Iraq. 3/28/03 - A few days after crossing the Iraqi frontier, British Army lines were edging closer to Basra. Roads were jammed with local people heading towards us. On May 28 we made it into the city limits. As the British got close, a barrage of mortars was unleashed by Iraqi forces. I saw a group of civilians running towards me passing a destroyed tank. Within seconds we had to dive under the same tank as mortar shells exploded around us. (Image by Chris Helgren, Reuters)

Bush.
