At least 36 Iraqis killed in Falluja


Al-Jazeera - 07/04/2004 08:30:00 GMT

Fighting in the Iraqi town of Falluja has killed at least 36 civilians over the past day, doctors said on Wednesday.

25 killed in a house destroyed in an attack that locals blamed on U.S. forces.

Witnesses said the house in the Sunni Muslim town, 50 km (32 miles) west of Baghdad, was hit by rockets fired by a U.S. helicopter on Tuesday night. A U.S. occupation forces spokeswoman in Baghdad said she had no information on the incident.

The house was reduced to rubble in the attack. Locals said four families had been sheltering there and that some victims were still buried in the debris.

Occupation tightens siege on Falluja

Wednesday 07 April 2004, 12:54 Makka Time, 9:54 GM

Fierce street battles are raging in Falluja between resistance fighters defending the town and US occupation forces, who are launching missile attacks in and around residential areas.

At least 52 Iraqis have died in attacks since Tuesday in the besieged town which American forces completely sealed off on Sunday, according to hospital sources reported Aljazeera's correspondent Ahmad Mansur. More than 100 others, including children, have been injured.

Twenty-six of those killed were from one family.

Speaking live from a rooftop in the tense town, Mansur said the hospital is struggling to cope with the rising casualties.



"They are attacking residential neighbourhoods," he said as US warplanes swooped over the area and fired rockets. Intense gunfire could be heard from the streets.
