American and British warplanes have attacked
air defence sites in southern Iraq.


The United States defence department said the
action was carried out at two sites south-east of
Baghdad in response to recent hostile threats.


A Pentagon spokesman said the air strikes had
nothing to do with last week’s suicide plane
attacks in New York and Washington.


The BBC Defence Correspondent says the action
was part of routine allied monitoring of the air
exclusion zones set up after the Gulf War.
