Roads out of Baghdad become no-go zones

Not really news. It's been like this since last September.

"Mohammed Ghazi Umron has a front-row seat for the perils of Iraq's roads: the cab of his truck.

The road north through Baquba? "Pretty dangerous,'' he says. Due south through Mahmudiyah? "It's bad, but I haven't heard of any drivers being killed there in a few weeks." How about west through Abu Ghraib and on to Fallujah? "Very, very dangerous. We try not to go past Abu Ghraib."
