(Washington-AP) -- U.S. Central Command is confirming a bombing attack on a leadership target in Baghdad. A CentCom spokesman says the strike came at 2 p.m. Baghdad time (5 a.m. Central time) in the upscale Mansour neighborhood. The spokesman says: "We are confirming that a leadership target was indeed hit very hard." He had no information on the results of the attack. U.S. officials say an American B-One-B bomber struck a residential complex after U.S. intelligence received information that Saddam Hussein, his sons and other top Iraqi leaders might be meeting there. The sources say the B-One-B dropped four two-thousand-pound bunker-busting bombs.
