The Pentagon is reporting about 500 Iraqi fighters have been killed in the last two days by the 3rd Infantry Division.

Meanwhile it is extremely difficult to get any information on Iraqi civilian casualties.

The London Guardian is reporting in Nassiriya a US warplane dropped up to four cluster bombs on a civilian area killing 10 and wounding 200. In northeast Iraq, U.S. missiles hit a village killing 34. And Kurdish officials say at least 150 people were killed by US bombing over the weekend in northern Iraq.

The BBC has just reported Bodies of at least 30 Iraqis have been seen along the road from southern town of Nasiriya.

Thirty-nine U.S. and British military personnel have been confirmed killed since the Iraqi conflict began.

We talk to Milan Rai, author of War Plan Iraq and one of the founders of Voices in the Wilderness, UK, about the opening days of the US invasion
