New explosions hit the Iraqi capital on Monday afternoon, witness said.

"There were six explosions from the east and south east," said correspondent Nadim Ladki, adding that though siren sounded,no anti-aircraft fire could be seen. Four or five faint explosions were also heard to the south of the Iraqi capital.

Baghdad has been rocked by repeated waves of cruise missile strikes and bombings since the start of a US-led war to oust President Saddam Hussein on Thursday.

It was a cloudy day in Baghdad with black smoke still pouring from oil-filled trenches around the city set alight on Saturday, although there was less smoke than on Sunday.
