US forces refusing to let Red Crescent Aid into Fallujah
The first aid convoy arrived in Falluja amid fears of a humanitarian crisis. But US forces have prevented supplies being distributed, an aid agency said.

Fardous al-Ubaidi, from the Iraqi Red Crescent, said five lorries and three ambulances had driven to the city's hospital carrying food and medicine, but were told to go no further.

Aid agencies have expressed growing fears about the plight of civilians trapped in the city without food or medical supplies.

But a US commander reportedly said the US military was taking its own supplies into the city.

Marine Colonel Mike Shupp said casualties could be brought to the hospital, and cast doubt on the idea there were any civilians trapped inside the city, according to Reuters news agency.






Pretty atrocious behaviour in my opinion.

1. This has been going on for a while now...
it is atrocious and despicable.

There is no legitimate reason for it whatsoever.

3. Ridding the scene of evidence.
Before moving on to "liberate" other places to provide parking lots for the oil workers.
