Nasiriya still not secure:
Many of the patients in the main hospital in Nasiriya have fled the building following an attack on the complex by a group of armed men.
Marines, who had been guarding the hospital, left last night. And another man has been shot dead after people tried to steal his vehicle....
There are varying reports as to who is behind the violence and the widespread looting....
Basra battle 'is on two fronts':
UK soldiers are fighting soldiers from Iraq's armed forces as well as against the irregular militia troops....
Umm Qasr aid effort 'a shambles':
"...The hospital has been without water for three days. Inside people were very angry with me because I was a westerner. They felt angry, frustrated and let down by the coalition.
Many had come to Umm Qasr from Basra because they had been told in American radio broadcasts that they would be looked after. They now say the coalition lied to them...."
