The U.S. military launched its third airstrike in a week Friday in Fallujah, using precision weapons to destroy a suspected safehouse for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s terror network. U.S. officials estimated 20-25 people were killed. The Jordanian-born terrorist claimed responsibility for coordinated attacks in other Iraqi cities that killed more than 100 people Thursday — less than a week before Iraq’s new government takes power. Insurgents set off car bombs and seized police stations in an offensive aimed at creating chaos before the handover. “Wherever and whenever we find elements of the Zarqawi network, we will attack them,” a military statement said of the strike. U.S. officials estimated 20-25 people were killed, without indicating how they determined the figure. Al-Jazeera television, in a report from Fallujah, said four U.S. missiles struck a vacant house in the eastern part of the city, injuring four residents of a nearby home. Full Story
