A roadside bombing killed 10 U.S. Marines who were patrolling the uneasy Sunni town of Fallujah.
Less than a week after launching a major assault to oust rebels from Fallujah, U.S. and Iraqi forces smashed the last major sector under insurgent control Sunday.
U.S. and Iraqi forces pushed deeper into the shattered city of Fallujah Friday, battling withering fire and persistent snipers in a bid to crush the remaining pockets of resistance.
Backed by aircraft and artillery shelling, U.S. forces launched a major attack Thursday aimed at cordoning off Sunni fighters who have retreated into pockets in the southern part of the rebel-held city of Fallujah.
U.S. forces swiftly seized control of 70 percent of the Iraqi city of Fallujah on Wednesday -- the third day of a major offensive to take over the rebel stronghold prior to national elections.
U.S. and Iraqi troops claimed control over one-third of Fallujah and were slowly moving into the city's center Tuesday, the second day of a major ground offensive against the insurgent stronghold.
Iraqi and U.S. forces launched the first phase of a major assault against the rebel stronghold of Fallujah in central Iraq on Monday, seizing a hospital and two bridges over the Euphrates River.
U.S. airplanes and tanks fired on suspected rebel strongholds in eastern and western Fallujah on Wednesday in the heaviest bombardment on the Iraqi city in several weeks.
The top negotiator in Fallujah peace talks with the Iraqi government said dialogue would remain suspended, despite his release Monday by U.S. authorities as an apparent bid to resume talks to end the fighting in the major insurgent stronghold.
U.S. Marines will begin withdrawing from Fallujah as a new Iraqi security force moves in under an agreement reached late Wednesday to end the month-long standoff between coalition forces and insurgents.
