Which targets were hit
Baghdad residents are assessing the scale of damage to the capital
The United States and Britain say their 70 hours of air strikes against Iraq:
They say the targets fell into two broad categories:
British officials say the Iraqi chemical and biological weapons programme - which sparked the current crisis - has been severely set back.
They say reconstituting Iraq's air defences following the damage caused in the attacks could take several years.
National and regional headquarters of the elite Republican Guard were also a key focus of attack. The guard has been described as "the linchpin of Saddam's regime". It is considered the top force in the Iraqi army and fiercely loyal to Saddam Hussein.
Government ministries, presidential palaces and buildings of the ruling Ba'ath Party in and around Baghdad were also hit. These are ostensibly political targets, but many of them are suspected of doubling as storage facilities for the weapons of mass destruction programme.
Also attacked was a programme for developing an unmanned aerial vehicle capable for use in delivering biological and chemical weapons.
In all around 100 separate targets came under attack in Desert Fox. Most are in the lowland areas between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers from Tikrit in the north to the southern port city of Basra.
Over 400 cruise missiles - each one costing $750,000 - were fired from US ships in the Gulf and from B-52 bombers. The Iraqis say they shot down around a quarter of these.
Casualties and claims
Funeral services have been held for 68 people who Iraqi officials say were killed in the raids. But Iraq's Ambassador to the UN, Nizar Hamdoon, said: "I'm told that the casualties are in the thousands in terms of numbers of people who were killed or wounded."
But because the Iraqi authorities control journalists' access to damage sites, confirmation of this has been impossible. The UK Ministry of Defence said it was not certain that the full facts about Iraqi casualties would ever be known.
The Iraqi authorities say the air strikes deliberately targeted civilian facilities including hospitals, colleges, residential areas of Baghdad and food storage areas.
They said that in Baghdad medical and maternity centres, a water supply system and parts of the health and social affairs ministries were damaged.
British Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff, Air Marshal Sir John Day, said 85% of the targets attacked were hit, and 74% of them suffered significant damage.
Another of the pictures at the briefing showed damage to the Iraqi Ministry of Industry in Baghdad, which was assessed by the US and British forces to be the administrative centre for Iraq's weapons of mass destruction programme.
Officials said the images showed how precise the targetting had been.
