Iraqi's body in Basra

The body of an Iraqi irregular soldier floats in a marsh in Basra. Red Crescent volunteers retrieved the bodies of soldiers slain in fighting with British troops. British paratroopers entered the city on foot and frenzied looting broke out as residents grew more confident that Saddam Hussein's rule was over.Don Bartletti / Los Angeles Times
