US ARMY ENGINEER TERESA LITTLE CLEANS HER RESPIRATOR SOUTH OF NAJAF.
US Army private first class Teresa Little from Farmington, Arkansas,
uses an air hose to clean her respirator after three days of heavy
sandstorms south of the Shi'ite Muslim holy city of Najaf on March 27,
2003. Fiercer than expected Iraqi resistance, blinding sandstorms and
the need to protect a long and vulnerable supply line have raised
questions about the timing of a battle for Baghdad. REUTERS/Kai
