BASRA, Iraq (AP) _ With their own and Western TV cameras rolling, Iraqi officials took journalists on a tour of the rubble and misery they say is the result of the allied air raid.

U.S. officials said their targets were military, but conceded some ''collateral damage,'' the military term for civilian casualties.

At Saddam Hospital on Friday, two days after the air raid, Hameiya Kathin, suffering broken bones and severe burns, had not been told her husband and son had been killed, officials said.

''My husband told me to stay with my son when we heard the sound of the planes,'' she said. ''Suddenly we heard an explosion and the house came down on our heads.''

Near her was a 4-year-old boy, Ayad Jalih, with a gash in his right cheek doctors said came from shrapnel.

Outside the hospital, a young girl, perhaps 8 years old, approached a reporter and asked, ''Why did President Bush drop bombs on us? What did we do?''

Reporters also were shown two ruined mud brick houses in the Khor Zubair neighborhood, carcasses of dogs, mules, sheep and cows, and a crater 23 feet wide and 6 feet deep.

There was no other physical evidence of residential damage and journalists saw none in the city itself. There was no confirmation of a report that an apartment building was leveled. Other sites besides Basra were struck, however, and these were not shown to journalists.

Nor were military targets shown to journalists. Iraq says civilians also were targeted.

Iraqi officials say 19 people were killed - 17 military personnel and two civilians - and 15 civilians and soldiers were wounded.

At Khor Zubair, Qais Ismail Youssef, 18, said he was watching television at a friend's house when he heard an explosion, rushed to a window and saw fire and smoke. He ran to a nearby petrochemical factory for help. But he said help came too late for his cousin Bashir Qayd Wasi, 50, and his cousin's son, Zemil Abidine, 7. They were the two civilian deaths.

The factory, a few hundred yards away was not bombed, nor was the small military barracks nearby.

In Basra, a major military district 270 miles southeast of Baghdad, soldiers were walking in the streets as usual. Tanks and anti-aircraft guns were visible on the outskirts of the city and on the highway.
