2. More US Terrorism....
Those poor people...

<snip>

Residents in the city, 60 miles north of Baghdad, told Reuters by telephone that big explosions were shaking the town. They reported heavy air strikes over more than two hours.


Most residents were sheltering indoors, they said.

Officials in Baghdad were not available to comment.


CNN's reporter in Iraq (news - web sites), Jane Arraf, in a live broadcast from Samarra, said she was accompanying U.S. forces engaged in the attack, which she described as "an entire brigade-size operation into Samarra to root out insurgents."


She said she had been told there were an estimated 2,000 fighters in the rebel stronghold, including 250 foreigners.
