Many killed in US attacks on Falluja
Many killed in US attacks on Falluja
Wednesday 07 April 2004

Fierce street battles are raging in Falluja between resistance fighters defending the town and US occupation forces.

Hospital sources said at least 52 Iraqis were killed and 90 injured in attacks on the besieged town on Wednesday, including 40 people inside the Abd al-Aziz al-Samari mosque.

Among the casualties were a family sitting in a car parked behind the mosque.

American forces said those killed were fighters taking refuge in the mosque. A US marine was also shot dead near the mosque by the fighters.

Over 53 Iraqis died in attacks overnight on the town which was sealed off on Sunday by US forces.Twenty-five of those killed were from one family.

"More than 200 Iraqis, including women and children, were injured in the past 24 hours," said Aljazeera correspondent in Falluja, Ahmad Mansur.

The correspondent said F16 jet fighters bombarded the eastern side of the town. He quoted witnesses as saying that a US helicopter was shot down and a tank set on fire.
