US Massacres Civilians in Falluja; "Body Parts Everywhere"
11/14: Updates on the Iraq news page
11/09/2004, several thousand people gathered at Powell and Market Streets in San Francisco and marched in opposition to the US attack on Falluja. The march route took protesters past many of the hotels where workers are locked out and protesters joined in with the picketers at the hotels demanding an end to the lockout.

11/13/2004 The US has declared "mission accomplished" in Falluja, with the US military claiming to have killed over 1000 people in the week long assault. While an Iraqi Red Crescent aid convoy was allowed to enter Falluja they were only allowed to visit the main hospital and were not allowed to distribute aid to those in the city or the refugee camps that have sprung up around the city's outskirts. "They are dying of starvation and a lack of water, especially the children," a Red Crescent spokeswoman said.
11/12/2004 The mass killing of Iraqis by US troops continues in Falluja. Resistance attacks have spread across the war-torn country to alleviate the pressure on Falluja. Aid agencies say they are increasingly concerned about Iraqi civilians trapped in the besieged rebel city of Falluja.
11/11/2004: Two U.S. helicopters were shot down near Fallujah and the Iraqi Resistance took control of much of the Northern Iraqi city of Mosul. Clashes also broke out in the oil center of Baiji in northern Iraq. A Car bomb exploded near Kirkuk and a series of car bombs killed many in Baghdad. Little real news is able to make its way out of the city and coverage could get even worse as Iraq's media regulator has warned news organisations to stick to the government line on Falluja or face legal action.
11/10/2004:U.S. artillery have been firing white phosphorous rounds into Fallujah neighborhoods, creating a screen of fire which melts skin and cannot be extinguished with water. Almost half of the mosques in Falluja have been destroyed so far in the US raid. Meanwhile, members of Iraqi Prime Minister Allawi's family have been abducted and hundreds of armed men control much of Ramadi and briefly took over over a major bridge in Baghdad.
11/08/2004: The US ground assault on Falluja has begun. Falluja General Hospital has been occupied by U.S. soldiers. At least 200 Iraqi troops had deserted their posts.
