A US military statement said the latest air raid targeted "a known Zarqawi network safe house" in south-eastern Falluja. Two US air strikes this
week on suspected militant hideouts linked to Zarqawi in Falluja killed at least 40 people; residents and Iraqi security sources said civilians were
among the dead. Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

have established themselves and has become a serious problem as Iraq is supposed to be moving towards a new era. The situation in Iraq will need more
