Thousands flee fighting in Iraq's Fallujah

The UN says violence in Fallujah and Ramadi has sparked the worst displacement of people since 2006-2008.

    According to the UN, fighting in Iraq’s western Anbar province has forced more than 140,000 people out of their homes.

    The government is trying to drive out al-Qaeda-linked fighters who have taken over some parts of Fallujah city.
