US Forces restore more services

(Reuters) - U.S. forces say they are making progress in restoring water and power supplies to Baghdad citizens, but concede there is confusion over who has the authority to run the Iraqi capital.

U.S. officials told a news conference on Saturday that about 60 percent of normal water and power supplies were now available in Baghdad, and full services could resume within a week or two.

Of Iraq's normal daily consumption of 15 million litres of gasoline, Hawkins said, Doura was supplying three million litres and Baiji eight million.

"So we are well over 60 percent of their gasoline needs," he said.
