U.S. forces move within 100 miles of Baghdad, but a supply convoy well behind the front lines goes astray with disastrous results. Twelve of the 16 soldiers in the convoy are officially unaccounted for, and some are believed dead. At least five, seen in a videotape shown on Iraqi television and the al-Jazeera network, are believed to be alive but held as prisoners. Meanwhile, fighting near Nasiriyah claims the lives of several Marines. Hear NPR's Lynn Neary and NPR's Scott Horsley.>
