Allies push closer to Baghdad
March 31, 2003
Allied forces also attacked the suspected Khurmal terrorist camp north of Baghdad in northeast Iraq - identified by U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell in a pre-war speech to the United Nations - killing an undetermined number of presumed terrorists in the process, U.S. officials said. British media reported that 120 were killed.
Franks called the facility used by the militant group Ansar al-Islam "massive" and said ground forces were searching it Sunday. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said it comprised dozens of sites, including tunnels and bunkers.
"We have destroyed a major portion of it. We've killed a large number of terrorists," Rumsfeld said on the Fox New Sunday program.
"We know that ... they were developing toxins and poisons in that area. We know that al-Qaida was connected to it ... We're not certain what we'll find, but we should know more in the next three days, three or four days
