"As of this morning, coalition forces are actually in the city of Baghdad" said Navy Capt. Frank Thorp. "As we moved into the city, we saw sporadic fighting, we've actually moved through the Republican Guard divisions to pretty much the center of the city." "We have substantial forces now moving into the city," he said. Asked if the U.S. Army's V Corps were on a probing mission, Thorp said, "they're not coming out." "That's not the intent to come back out," he said. "They're in Baghdad." Thorp said the best way to classify the situation in the city is that it was under control despite sporadic fighting. "We'll continue to operate where we find opportunities to move forward, we'll move forward," he said. "Its been a steady deliberate pace as we move forward."

It's been widely reported that David Brian Mitchell was allegedly trying to abduct 18-year-old Jessica Wright during a break-in at the family's home July 24. But father Steven Wright said he has known since the night of the break-in that the likely target was his younger daughter, a favorite playmate of Elizabeth who is the same age, 15. Jessica Wright and her younger sister shared a bedroom before Elizabeth disappeared, Steven Wright said. The Wrights later remodeled their home, and the younger girl moved to another room. During the break-in, a screen covering Jessica's bedroom window was cut. Mitchell has been charged with attempted kidnapping in connection with the break-in.
