US warplanes attacked targets on Thursday on the western bank of the Tigris River in Baghdad where non-Iraqi Arab fighters seemed to be in control of several districts, a Reuters correspondent in the city said.

Khaled Yacoub Oweis saw several explosions as US planes swooped over the Mansur district in west Baghdad. He said Arab fighters were in control of streets in Mansur and other districts in the west of the city. They were manning checkpoints and US troops were nowhere to be seen.
