- Saddam Hussein still has hundreds of Scud missiles, said Defense Secretary Dick Cheney. Iraqi missile support systems have been damaged, he said. Iraq spent $50 billion on armaments in the past decade and has "perhaps the world's fourth largest armed force," Cheney said.

- Iraq said Monday it had scattered prisoners of war at "civilian, economic, education and other targets" - a move that recalled its prewar strategy of using foreign hostages as "human shields."- Seven POWs - three Americans, two Britons, an Italian and a Kuwaiti - were shown on Baghdad TV. Cheney said interviews with three men identified as captured U.S. fliers contained "clearly coerced statements" in violation of the Geneva Conventions.

- President Bush accused Iraq of treating the POWs brutally, adding, "it's not going to make a difference in the prosecution of the war."

- U.S. losses in the war totaled one dead, 12 missing in action and 10 planes downed, U.S. officials said.
