US bombs Falluja again

The Iraqi town of Falluja has once again come under attack with US warplanes bombing a building on its outskirts.

    US warplanes have repeatedly hit the town in recent weeks

    The US military said the bombing on Sunday probably killed a "large number of insurgents" who had been shifting weapons.

    The strike, the third in just over 24 hours, severely damaged the building targeted, triggering a wave of secondary explosions.

    The US military said the subsequent explosions proved ammunition had been inside the building.

    "A large number of enemy fighters are presumed killed," the military said.
