U.S. Military Fails to Advance in Falluja, Reinforcements Called
11 Apr 2004
As the people of Falluja continue to appeal to the international community to come to their aid, the U.S. Military announced it was reinforcing its troops surrounding the city.
It is expected that the 1,200 troops will be reinforced with a full battalion.

Meanwhile, Iraqi doctors are condemning the ominous silence of Arab governments.

"Where are the dogs of the Arab League, the cowards hiding all these Arabs who say they are Arab as they watch hundreds of civilians die? Where are they? Fallujah is dying, the American filth are killing an entire city," Fallujah doctor Bassam Al Qufeili told Arab media.

Meanwhile, three Iraqi resistance fighters were reported killed in Mosul, seven Mahdi Army militiamen in Ramadi and three others in a firefight with Iraqi police in central Baghdad.

As for the abducted former U.S. serviceman working as a private security guard, his captors aired a video of the man, looking visibly scared, an Iraqi flag adorning a wall behind him. His captors threatened to execute him if U.S. forces do not pull out of Fallujah.

Iraq experts are warning foreigners that they are now targets in Iraq.

It is unknown whether U.S. authorities are trying to negotiate the American's release. correspondent Firas al-Atraqchi drafted this report.
