War Update: Controlling Southern Iraq

U.S. Marines continued an effort to establish control of southern Iraq. Troops swept toward al-Amarah, a southern Iraqi city that has yet to see U.S. or British troops. The Marines were expecting to fight one of the remaining divisions of Iraq's army. But as NPR's Steve Inskeep reports, that unit disappeared during the advance.
