Fallujah doctors appeal for help

Iraqi civilians struggle to survive as battles between anti-government fighters and security forces intensify.

    Doctors in the Iraqi city of Fallujah have appealed for more medical staff to help them deal with the rising number of casualties from clashes between the army and anti-government fighters.

    The city has been held by fighters since the start of the year. The Iraqi government has promised to remove them with a full-scale military offensive.
