The hasty ret.-eat of the Turks in this quarter seems to imply that the forces defending Khanikin have been greatly over-estimated and it is appar- ent that they have as yet been unable to-transfer the force released by the surrender of Kut-El-Amara to assist their hard pressed army north of Bag- dad. The Russian advance upon Kha- nikiii therefore very seriously threat- ens the whole rear of the Turkish Bagdad army, confronting that army with the possibility of being entirely cut on" from the city of Bagdad and the forces operating to the southward against the British.
