US air raid on Falluja kills civilians

A US air strike has destroyed two homes and killed women and children in Falluja following an exchange of gunfire with Iraqi resistance fighters on the outskirts of the city.

    Women and children have been routinely killed, hurt in Falluja

    Eight Iraqis were killed and 10 others wounded, mostly women and children, on Saturday after US troops clashed with fighters in Falluja and warplanes struck two homes, hospital sources said.

     

    "We have received eight killed and 10 injured," said doctor Ali Khamis at Falluja's general hospital, adding that the dead included two women and two children.

     

    US occupation sources said earlier that they struck positions they suspected were being used by resistance fighters after a marine post on the outskirts of the city came under heavy machine-gun fire and rocket-propelled grenade attacks.
