Edited on Thu Nov-11-04 05:09 PM by maddezmom
BAGHDAD, Iraq - The Iraqi government warned news organizations Thursday to distinguish between insurgents and ordinary civilians in coverage of the fighting in Fallujah and to promote the leadership's position or face unspecified action.



The warning came in a statement sent to news organizations by Iraq (news - web sites)'s Media High Commission, which cited the 60-day state of emergency declared Sunday on the eve of the offensive in Fallujah.


"You must be precise and objective in handling news and information," the statement said.


It stressed the necessity of differentiating between "innocent citizens of Fallujah who are not targeted by the military operations and between the terrorist groups who infiltrated the city and took its people hostage under the pretext of resistance and jihad."
