Topics and Guests, April 7

Tonight on Special Report with Brit Hume:

Coalition forces continue their aerial assault on Baghdad, hours after U.S. troops barrel through the heart of the Iraqi capital in a dramatic show of force designed to prove the coalition can enter the city with impunity.


• Ali Hassan al-Majid, one of the most brutal members of President Saddam Hussein's inner circle, is apparently killed by an airstrike on his house in Basra. He had been dubbed "Chemical Ali" by opponents for ordering a 1988 poison gas attack that killed thousands of Kurds.

• With U.S. tanks rolling into central Baghdad, Iraq's information minister denies in a rooftop news conference that the Americans are in the city, declaring: "Be assured Baghdad is safe, secure and great."

• The United States has begun building a new Iraqi army by deploying some of the nation's exiles and internal dissidents around the country, while using its own might to weaken Saddam Hussein's grip on power inside Baghdad.
