Iraq moved to consolidate its hold on the farthest reaches of Kuwaiti territory Friday, but it promised to begin withdrawing some of its troops as early as Sunday in the face of mounting international pressure against the invasion. An estimated 100,000 Iraqi troops and 300 tanks were pushing through Kuwait's southern oil fields to within 5 to 10 miles of the Saudi border, according to U.S. and Saudi sources.
