From same CNN article:
Other developments
• The U.S.-led Coalition Provisional Authority and the Iraqi Interior Ministry said Friday that they will be opening an Iraqi police training facility in Jordan and hope to train 35,000 new police officers in the neighboring Arab country within two years. The cadets will be Iraqis who have not previously served on the police force. The first 500 cadets will begin their training at the end of November. The trainees will undergo an eight-week course.

• Electrical service in Iraq has been restored nearly to the level of power generated before the war, U.S. officials said Friday. Electrical power generation in Iraq was at a postwar peak Thursday, when output reached 4,200 megawatts, according to U.S. military sources. Before the war, average power generation was 4,400 megawatts.

• An Iraqi judge ordered the confiscation of nearly 2,300 metric tons of Iraqi oil and two tankers suspected of trying to smuggle the material out of the country, the Coalition Provisional Authority said Friday. A coalition naval task force seized the two vessels, the Saudi Gizan and the Manara II, in August in the Persian Gulf. The move allows the Iraqi Finance Ministry to dispose of the vessels and oil, the coalition, and any proceeds would go to the Central Bank of Iraq.
