Security crackdown begins in Bagdad

"Sirens wailed throughout Baghdad yesterday as shoppers rushed out to stock up on food in the face of extended curfews and one of the largest citywide security clampdowns in three years.

U.S. and Iraqi soldiers and police stopped almost every car on major roads and conducted random checks at the neighborhood level as they kicked off a massive operation aimed at restoring security to the city of 6 million people."
