Over 250 Iraqis Surrender
U.S. Marines under British command took at least 250 Iraqi prisoners on Friday as they advancedsintosthe outskirts of the important southern port of Umm Qasr, a British commander said.
Colonel Steve Cox told Reuters on board the British flagship Ark Royal in the Gulf that the Iraqi troops had surrendered to the U.S. 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit by noon.
Colonel Steve Cox在英国Ark皇家军舰上告诉路透社记者，中午时候，伊拉克部队向美国第15海军陆战部队投降。
Reuters correspondent Adrian Croft, who is with 15 MEU, said the marines raised the Stars and Stripes over Umm Qasr's new port around noon but had yet to take the old port, about a mile away.
美第15海军陆战的路透社随军记者Adrian Croft说，美海军已经占领了Umm Qasr的新港口，但是还没有占领该地域距此约一英里的旧港口。
Umm Qasr, close to the second city of Basra, is Iraq's main port for cargo and its capture would give the British-led brigade control of virtually all access to Iraq by sea.
