(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Shelling in the Iraqi city of Fallujah, held by anti-government fighters for more than four months, has killed 11 people in less than 24 hours, a doctor said yesterday.

It was not immediately clear who was behind the shelling in various areas in the south of city, just a short drive to the west of Baghdad.

The bombardment began on Saturday night and continued into yesterday, Doctor Ahmed Shami said, adding that four people were also wounded.

In a sign of both the reach of anti-government militants and the weakness of security forces, all of Fallujah and shifting parts of Anbar provincial capital Ramadi, farther west, have been out of government control since early January.

The crisis in the desert province of Anbar, which shares a long border with conflict-hit Syria, erupted in late December when security forces dismantled Iraq's main Sunni Arab anti-vernment protest camp just outside Ramadi.


Al Qaeda-inspired jihadists vow more Egypt attacks

CAIRO: An Al Qaeda inspired jihadist group yesterday vowed new attacks in Egypt as it claimed two suicide bombings that were carried out a day before the presidential campaign began.

Ansar Beit Al Maqdis (Partisans of Jerusalem) said it carried out Friday's attacks, which targeted a checkpoint and a nearby bus outside the South Sinai provincial capital Al Tur.

The Sinai-based group, which has claimed some of the deadliest attacks in Egypt since the ouster of president Mohamed Mursi last July, called for a revolt against the military-installed authorities

"We will not rest until we avenge the blood and bodies of Muslims," the group said in a statement posted on jihadist forums, referring to the killing of Morsi supporters in a brutal police crackdown launched after his ouster.
