Baghdad from the air:
Coalition forces bombed sites in the centre of the Iraqi capital from the air, and later in the campaign shelled parts of the city with ground artillery.
Several buildings which were important to Saddam Hussein's government are located within a small sector of the city on the west bank of the River Tigris.
