Residents Loot City as British Secure Basra

Basra is under the control of British forces, British officials say. The southern Iraqi city had been the scene of a standoff between British troops and paramilitary and Fedayeen fighters since the first week of the war. Meanwhile, Basra residents flood the streets and loot the city. NPR's Alex Chadwick talks to the BBC's Kylie Morris.
