On the map the yacht seems to be floating on its side; but in the pictures from the BBC article it certainly appears to be upright now. This seems somewhat odd...

The BBC article was April 10.
Saddam Hussein's presidential yacht
Al Mansur, damaged by an air strike
during the conflict, and attacked
subsequently by local people as a symbol
of the former regime, finally sank on
the afternoon of 12 June at Basrah

Thanks for bringing me up to speed.
