30 Iraqis Killed by US 
Marines Near Falluja

CAMP FALLUJA, Iraq (Reuters) -

U.S. Marines killed around 30 Iraqis overnight 
in a firefight near the flashpoint town of 
Falluja, Colonel John Coleman said on Saturday. 

Marines spotted a small group of armed men, 
one with a mortar, and shot at them near a 
small village on the banks of the Euphrates, 
he said at the U.S. base of Camp Falluja, just 
outside the town.

The Iraqis were joined by about 30 others 
and the Marines called in air support, Coleman, 
the chief of staff of the Marine Expeditionary 
Force, told reporters. 

He said all the Iraqis were killed in the action, 
but gave no other details.

Marines have been ordered to suspend 
offensive operations for nearly two weeks 
to allow talks with Falluja civic leaders aimed 
at restoring peace to the town, but are allowed 
to shoot back if fired on.
