Coalition forces continued their aerial assault on Baghdad Monday afternoon, hours after U.S. troops barreled through the heart of the Iraqi capital just after dawn in a dramatic show of force designed to prove the coalition can enter the city with impunity.
Missiles screamed over Baghdad early Monday and thunderous explosions shook buildings as the entire 2nd Brigade of the Army's 3rd Infantry Division moved north into the city. More than 70 tanks and 60 Bradley fighting vehicles pushed north on Highway 8, meeting only moderate resistance -- mostly assault fire and rocket-propelled grenades.
Troops stormed Saddam's newest presidential palace and set up a prisoner of war holding pen inside the elaborate compound on the west bank of the Tigris, which divides the city. The ruling Baath Party headquarters was completely destroyed.
