THE police chief in the volatile Anbar province of western Iraq has resigned two months into his job after gunmen tried to kill him, the province's governor said today.
Gunmen surrounded Fawaz al-Duleimi's house in Anbar, which includes the rebellious Sunni Muslim cities of Fallujah and Ramadi, for two hours last week and badly wounded his brother, witnesses said. Duleimi lives in Ramadi.
US forces arrested Duleimi's predecessor on suspicion of cooperation with insurgents, who operate in the province, Iraq's largest, and frequently attack American and Iraqi troops.
