Fighting in Basra reported by Xinhua

Write a comment

I've read Xinhua reports about Iraq since 2005.  Often they are first to report news, and Xinhua always has been accurate when reporting items about which I have firsthand knowledge.

Sounds of explosions and machinegun fire resonated in the city overnight and in the morning soon after the Iraqi security forces surrounded several of the city's neighborhoods which are known as Mahdi Army militia strongholds, witnesses at the scene told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
